Yosemite Forest California

ancient trees reaching for the sky        
whispering stories to the winds        
that the only the guardians of this place can decipher          
sitting amongst the pine cones        
this is where I first fell in love with nature        
with my young virgin heart        
forever written on my soul        
will be the swaying of their branches        
the lush ferns and pine needles        
where I lay and dreamt of my future        
an artist I was going to be        
painting out the landscape        
that freed me of my fear        
put my mind at ease        
let my soul soar like the regal eagles          
I saw kissing the sky        
flying with them        
unconcerned with the Earth below        
a child of the forest     
I would get lost in it's raw beauty        
left in awe of mother nature        
that birthed these red woods        
these mountains on which I climbed        
scraping knees in innocence I bloomed        
the beauty of this place        
can't be contained with words        
she is wild, untamed, perfection        
it's time I visit her again        
my forlorn soul longing        
for her mystical touch        
a balm to my soul        
with her majestic trees        
wrapping me in her arms        
feeding me from her breasts, her mountains        
a great mamma to the world        
let these places be preserved        
forever unmovable        
standing as a beacon to all        
will remain unchanged        
I pray long after        
I've turned to dust        
and blown away        
to be one with the dirt        
that nourishes her mighty trees        
then may I be blessed with her stories    
that are sung to the Earth alone    
one with nature forever    
in the place most sacred to my heart
