near silence with Lily

I walked through a light streaming forest

At sundown.

Around old broken trees

And wild flowers

Sprouting around my feet.

My dog sniffed the air

And headed for a darkly

Narrowing stream

And looked for treasures.

The near silence

Of the forest

And its woody perfume

Made all the uncertainties slip away

Into the golden ribbons of light.
