Archive for the tag “forest”

breaking the speed of sound

forest edge is like the end of the world
as sure as you step one foot inside
you will never be the same

what roams the perimeter can be
seen during twilight
eyes flickering like candle tips
tap-dancing to the wind

invisible hand latches onto yours
hurling you high above using
supernatural powers
and suddenly you are soaring
tall like the trees
headlong and arms outstretched
hellbent on breaking the barrier

october two thousand seventeen
