The forest inspires me. The forest is where I escape my daily worries. The forest is the place where I create memories. For myself, for my family. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing my son’s eyes sparkling with joy when he splashes in the stream, finds sticks to play with or explores mossy logs holding his daddy’s hand.
It seems I have a prominent forest theme in my poetry. Here is another poem inspired by our time in Delph Woods in Dorset.
I find peace in the songs of a stream sang just for me by the nymphs. I find peace in the tunes of the trees hummed just for me by the dryads. I find peace in the laughter of my little son playing with the forest folk. I find peace in those little moments full of magic, full of love.
