A Poem by a Special Friend

Signature

Barefoot in the Woods

To my trees that have lived in solitude for centuries before me…
I came to visit on unexpected terms…
With the dew on the fallen leafs and dirt meshed beneath to the core…
These feet of mine would be sheltered by tethered shoes…
Afraid of the sensation of unsteady ground and the unclean…
But here I am…
Walking amongst the deep…
Toes wedged with twinges and soil…
Nothing between me and what God had conjured…
From the soles of my feet to soul of my being, a love there I have forgotten…

The shadows on the mountain side cast black wings to my back…
Some may say I am not worthy, neither here nor there, to be sent back…
But I say this to those who know no better…
Black as the soil that mothered the seeds…
That birthed the vines through which you drink your wine and make your creeds..
I see that I am flawed and I am not the Hero…
You sit and judge, unaware that you bare a throne on what will be Earth’s ground zero…
Stare, stare, stare as you please…
But what I will tell you, those that wear your shoes among the trees…
That refuse to see through the dirt and grow no wings…
No majestic castles or diamond frosted crowns I have to call my own…

But at least I know I can fly my way back Home…
