Photo Poem: “On Entering The Woods”

On Entering The Woods

Urban forest scene

On entering the woods,
external noise is lessened
and daylight settles
for that shadowy compromise.

On passing under the trees,
the body’s genes tighten 
and senses heighten
to recall a wilder past.

On leaving behind the copse,
a still mind is flooded
and human life coupled
(it never became detached)
with nature’s daily system
