[Video Poem] To The Woods


I ran away today,
to the woods, to the trees, to the nature that had beckoned me.
It is here I plan to stay for a day, for a week,
possibly eternity. I see the vastness of the world
in its beauty, and its splendor, and regard it with an admiration so tender.
I can feel how tiny I am, how little, how small,
and I know I don’t have power over it all. And yet I am significant
as a creature, as a being, in this wonderful world that I am seeing.
I was created with a purpose, a goal, a meaning,
and it is here, in these woods, in these trees,
that I intend to find it.

  5. This is beautiful… I feel like this when I am surrounded by trees .. I wish I could run away to the woods .. you capture all my feelings in your words .. .

  6. That was wonderful…. nature is the only place in this world that i feel like i belong… everything is connected, the trees with the the dirt and the water and the air….. and we humans have been so detached from each other, and everything around us. Sometimes the only thing you can do is run to the woods. I hope you'll create more poems! 🙂
