Into The Wild

Beneath shadowed trees, between gnarled roots
Darkened cool of dampened earth
This wide berth of forgotten earth
This soft hush, velour reserve

I withdraw in this green enclave
Caving in its fragrant maw, here I thaw
Into mossy feelings 
Of wordless whisperings

Light pierce the canopy
I lay in its yellow glare
Its bothersome rays of jovial mare
Trespass my mellow turf

While time whiles away, heedless I stay
With hazy dreams of gentle gladness
While the darkening day swallows 
the trail home, I say;
      Let the dark face my wild soul
      In this wilderness, I am home.
