In the forest

In the forest

By May Kwek

In the forest
I gently step
My eyes in wonder
of the life there

The gentle sun 
shines on the floor
growing little
glowing orbs

The quiet wind
dances through the trees
filling the air
with the rustlings of leaves

Behind the mighty giants
I catch a shadow of a deer
or perhaps it was a creature
from the tails we hold dear

The air is restful
full of contended peace
a place where men
may quietly sleep

Yet life is there
in the smallest of leaves
As long as the sun shines
nature may do as it please

In the forest
life's in the air
and if there is beauty
I am sure it is there
