A Day in the Forest

by Charles Coon
Green forest aglow
Shafts breaking through
dark canopy openings
A friend's lucid journey
of growth and compassion
described to me.
Her forest disturbed
by curtains of vines
Voices calling
and whispered warnings
no-return with your entry
A troubled choosing
departing forest beauty
tinged with joy
and light but
Without hesitation
her decision most clear
quickly parting the vines
A painful sharp sting
unnoticed in passage
Her heart somehow knew
the call of compassion
meant growth and arrival
enchanting sun beauty
green forest aglow
a curtain
and light.

(With thanks to "a friend"
for her collaboration!)
