Into the Forest of Light



These golden hours

When the sun no longer beats down heavy upon us



Instead dancing and teasing

In pockets of light



Displaying never before seen symmetry

Tiny dots on a fern



Alternating one each side

Then two, then more

Nature's very own domino 




Mesmerizing, these vantage points



Watching the world travel by

In liquid under your feet


These little feet make the journey into the forest

all on their own



A milestone

A memory itself in the making 



And in a clearing I see you

Seeing me

And I am delighted by that twinkle in your eye 



A mirror of the twinkle I see in his 


And all the more in the twinkle that surrounds him




In this magical place anything seems possible



So we are not surprised when it falls upon us 

That otherworldly light



We are bathed in it

Warmed by it



And succumb willingly to its power



A power that touches deep into everything it reaches




Even the very stones shimmer under our feet


We feel Light's power drawing closer in 

growing, growing



Until we are held captive


Caught in a web of our own choosing

Abandoning ourselves forever to the forest of light.
