Enduring lexicon

Cover the earth with your lexicon of words,

scatter them like ink black feathers falling from ravens,

carve your message deep in the enduring woods

and collect vagrant cones, needles and moss

to compose a place of solace apart from this crowded existence.

Forage for the purest moments and store them like a cache of acorns,

long forgotten by a squirrel but now stands a giant oak,

adorning the forest floor with pages from its storied book.

  1. Reblogged this on The ancient eavesdropper and commented:

    This poem has been buried away in The Ancient Eavesdropper archives, so I decided to bring it into the light so you, dear reader, can feast your eyes. I hope you enjoy & have a wonderful day!

    such a feel good poem.. beautiful imagery… I wish I could be in a forest right now…

    • Thank you, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed this older poem from the archives. While it’s always refreshing to walk in the forest, Nature is a state of mind you can take with you wherever you go, inside or out. I hope you are having a wonderful day 🙂

  4. I really look forward to reading your poems! They are very uplifting.

    • Thank you, my friend! I appreciate your kind words and support. If you’ve come here to be inspired by Nature, my poetry will not disappoint! As a Naturalist, I like to dabble in a little bit of everything to achieve a more holistic, well-rounded view. I hope you are having a wonderful day and keep up the inspiring photography on your blog!
      Tyler 🙂
