In the Stillness of the Forest


In the stillness of the forest…

Purpose and promise flirt with the breeze,
Wild and tame coexist with ease,
Croaking and crooning beasts at peace,
A distant hymn beckons, nightly passions cease,

In the stillness of the forest…

The fawn hops by merrily, unmindful of the snake,
Mighty oaks greet lean bamboos by the lake,
Tree spirits hasten to nudge lulled minds awake, 
Blue mist parts to reveal mortal gambles at stake,

In the stillness of the forest…

The majestic dusk’s silence breaks,
to indulge a novice poet’s fantasies,
The master in his lofty abode rakes,
Mysteries to feed universal fallacies,

In the stillness of the forest…
