In The Park Woods


Well worn paths

Through shaded glens

A cathedral of branches

Altar of leaves

Windows of green

Hidden chancels of dreams

Lost in paradise


Sweet the wind that chills

Dance with the breeze

A psalm of tenderness

Streams a symphony of praise

Darkness resistant

With a orchestra of hope

Adorned in a glorious light


Written for Sunday Scribblings

Written whilst playing Hide and Seek with my 9 year old daughter. I was hiding in the woods for a long time!!
