North Star

A snow-covered forest full of silent trees,
listening to the sounds of unseen things.

A desire for quiet in the deafening silence,
as lockdown takes its toll on the mind, body.

A snow-covered forest on a clear night,
wandering alone in search of wolves, bears;
searching for yourself in the quiet night.

A sense of constrained longing for travel,
as dreams of places take your mind away.

A snow-covered forest with your wolves,
sleeping on the forest floor dreaming;
connecting with the forest and the spirits.

A sense of peace fills you with new energy,
as you reconnect with the seen and unseen.

A snow-covered forest with your soul-mate,
walking in the snow together without words;
looking at the North Star and the soft lights.
