The Wild of the Woods

….and so i walk the footsteps of those who precede my thinking,
these are the spirit’s of rustic woodlands as found herein,
and it is they who speak in an un-known tongue from the forest of living,
a language that not many today have the time to learn away from the clatter….

—-clatter comes in many shapes and forms,
but the duty of clatter is all-ways the same,
and that is to distract one from the beauty of silence,
needless to say that clatter and silence will play at tugs of war within a soul….

—-i waunder out here with the knowledge of eternal presence,
that there are those who are stalking me with their own thoughts and desires,
just as now i am looking for my open window out here,
so as to side slip into where i can translate language with those of an-other tongue….

—-time passes according to the moments you keep within your head,
just as the greens of panchromatic tell me of what lies ahead,
out here i have learned to turn off the filters that ‘other’ scrivener’s taught,
out here ‘the wild of the woods’ knows my name and welcomes me home….

—-the week is long and the days are longer that beseech my time,
and within the labor pressed walls of my sweating shop box,
their is the eyes of a hard pressed shop labor master agitating me on,
shape-form-duty and taxes are all yielded up to the beast named clatter….

—-tis better now since out here i have un-plugged clatter,
the goliath that i wear around my wrist i have slipped inside my pocket,
just as his taunts are now re-moved from the space before my eye,
and the cell phone has since had it’s power pack shut down….

—-what welcome relief i have found in pellets of dimpled deer scat,
and just to know the harmony of the universe starts right here,
touch and taste with your fingers and know that i am not alone,
that here walks one who has come before with gestating ideas….

—-can one begin to see what lies within the hearts of man,
until that one has walked in the steps of those who so watch man,
just as out here i find those who are watching to see the choices i make,
out here the forest understands who i am and the role-of-dreams i play….

—-and so i walk on following the call that comes my way,
my ears have heard of a place where time is eternal,
and my eyes have visited the place where the thunder of silence gives wealth,
just as now my spirit jumps for up ahead i have found an open window….

....and what lies beyond,
will for now be a table in this wilderness,
where the call is out for any and all to enjoy,
a hilltop vista of banquet hall food thought….

Thank you.
GODSPEED,
Frank

….this clatter inside my head, has for now been put to sleep, with the thunder of silence, that makes a place for me within my ‘wood art’....

someone said once that he says nothing unless his words will add to the silence.

thought-provoking.

Exactly Ms. Debbie!

I wasn’t going to answer, just to add to the silence!

Frank, as you already know, I usually find your words reflect ideas found in the Bible.

1 Thessalonians vs.11 Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, …. vs. 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
