Trust and Harmony

I was at ease in the

darkest of nights,

a silent companion

to the sprouting insects

and nameless reptiles

gazing at the ancient branches

as they nodded to the delicate young plants

trust and peace in their countenance


I closed my eyes and mind

to the bristle of ghosts

unnerved by my presence


My feelings calm,

I conveyed my non-interference

let me live in a world of my own

while they dwelled in theirs

Under the Dark Branches

As I stood under the dark trees

I feared the branches

Imagining slimy creatures

And creepy insects hiding deep inside


The moon moved restlessly

Finally finding its place above the branches

Revealing flawless leaves

Sending soft breeze my way

Rendering my fears meaningless

As I felt profound peace
