It’s April again! And time for a month of writing and reading Poetry.

Prompt (optional) for day 5: write a poem that is based in the natural world

I’ve spent a lot of time in the forest and by the sea, that’s where I feel really alive. And that’s where the inspiration is close.


Liberated moves in a home of the living
where I am inside the giants’ breathing
my steps are muffled by the moss clad floor
and the sky is a ceiling I have no wish to reach for.

The old crooked man with staff to lean on
is one fallen tree embracing a friend
the end of an era that no one is counting
a twig branching  lifeform of endless contour.

Now the woodland lake shouts: “Come!
I want you to stay, and be with me!”
And when darkness falls I’m still in this house
where windows and doors are so out of use

I rest in the darkness that never sleeps
and comforted by the soothing sounds
with stories of heroines and heros in mind
and dreams filled with forestlike life.
