July 2016

In the middle of a forest
searching for the coastline

Knowing well that it is miles
from where we both stand
beneath the crunching leaves of autumn

The eyes of the future
look as rigorously exposed as my heart

Yet looking away from the pupils
of what possibilities that are awaiting –
my discovery; only peaks curiosity

Gazing into the blue sky above
through gaps of the colossal trees

A sudden epiphany
that discovering love in the forest
is wiser than seeking the unmarked ocean
while you are surrounded by the beauty of now.
