    Wandering... and resting


    weighed down 

    in fear and vulnerability

    revealed to the vast sky

    from where anything may fall

    yet, only does the harsh sunlight 

    glaring into her squinting eyes

    she retreats to the shadows 

    like a nocturnal animal


    Long after the tangled dream

    still stumbling to escape

    finally a clear path

    into the deep

    dark woods


    She rests

    on her roots

    with the cover 

    of leaves and limbs

    and the peace of the forest

    like a blanket for her weary soul
