Unspoken Forest

The white feathers
cover the ground like a blanket
keeping it sheltered
and hidden.
The setting sun
casts long shadows
over the quiet forest.
Tree limbs grab
at the leaves slowly drifting
The wind whispers things
into the peaceful air
carrying messages from place to place
And adding little comments ?that the unspoken forest
doesn’t dare utter

I really enjoyed reading this poem.  Beautiful imagery of nature was conveyed through your word choice.  I would appreciate if you could check out some of my work on this site.  Thank you.

Very nice. One of the few times when no rhyming does not hinder what i think about the poem. loved the imagery with the white feathers. Would appreciate it if people would put feedback on my poem Because I'm Dead.

Wow!  Those must have been some notes!  I  love what you do with the lines (slowly drifting/to/the/ground; from place to/place).  Powerful imagery; beautiful stuff here!!! And the age old question- "To rhyme or not to rhyme (that is the question)"- Whitman would be proud,as am I!!

Nice poem, it sounds like the poem is one with nature. It would sound better with rhyming but overall, good work.
