Surrounded By Trees


Whenever life’s troubles

are getting me down,

submerging me deeply

as though I will drown,

there’s somewhere I’ll wander

that keeps me from harm;

this forested sanctuary

acts like a charm.

The caw of a crow

and the greenness of leaves,

you’ll find me quite safe

when surrounded by trees.

I’m rooted, I’m grounded,

I’m hidden from sight;

a much needed escape

from the plight and the fight.

With nature I’m home

while with people I’m not,

so please don’t deny me

this so cherished spot.

You have beautifully related nature in your poem in a unique way. Being a dendrophile, I throughly enjoyed your writing.
