this past weekend,
we went into the woods
and found peace among the ferns.
we followed the trail into the
part of the forest.
a w a y from the due dates of school assignments,
a w a y from the dead lines of work projects,
a w a y from competitive soccer...
a w a y from expectations to perform
and pressures to produce.
this past weekend
we went into the woods,
to embrace the simplicity and goodness of life
among the ferns.
