In the heart of the forest

Where the silence is thunderous

Where the deep green rises and blocks out the sun

Where the flowers that blanket the forest floor

Shine with secret light

Where God would choose

To take Her morning walk

If She were of this world

Where my mind

Can steep in the stillness
