My Playdate

I come to visit forest friends,
gracious and patient
they extend
a warm and joyful ‘Welcome!’

With dappled sunlight dancing
on the fairy carpet green,
they gleefully entreat me
to join their playful scene.

Safe and sure I take a step
entranced by sylvan song
No longer just a visitor
I am home where I belong.

Forest friends

Currently unavailable for purchase

The woods are beautiful…
Come in and make friends with some trees. :)

    Wow – Love this one! “..home where I belong” (“make friends with some trees”) – Great words, now I go favor the photo..

  • This gives another meaning to the term, “tree hugger!” So glad you like it. Thanks! :)
