Again, it feels like the forest behind your house
So many memories
Shallow moisture
Prickles the skin upon the face
All leaves and stones
Trickling water off treetops
Mysterious, forbidden territory beyond the brush
Expansive landscape, the world engulfs me
Nothings’ felt so large, yet insignificant
Childhood, smothered in dirt
Comforting, real
It was ok to simply live.

This was inspired by thoughts of my grandparents woods in their backyard and how they felt as a child
