Spirits in the Forest

Photo Challenge – Spirits in the Forest.



Tuesday Photo Challenge -The Path

Our love began here in this dense forest
among the newly planted saplings,
in a springtime full of joyous woodland spirits.
And over the years our love had grown
as strong as the trees, and warm as this moss,
where I now sit listening to  your gentle voice
floating in the wind, that whispers through the leaves.

I had held your hand as life slipped away like sand,
and you travelled on to the journey’s end.
In your bright eyes I saw the trees calling me
into our forest for solitude and peace.
So I am not alone, because on this warm moss
where we sit, I can hear your gentle voice
floating in the wind, that whispers through the leaves.


Why not read my latest flash fiction. An annoying story with a twist.
