To Walk into Forests without a Light


How is it to walk into forests
without a light ?
To stand tall and forget
To be afraid.
To break memories
Against rocks and learn
How to trust venomous snakes
Sleeping soundly in the grass.

  1. Lovely and scary piece of work, Trini. Shiver, shiver. πŸ™‚
    I once went for a run, it took me deep into the forest, I run lightheartedly and I was 10 km away from home when it turned dark … Luckily the glow worms kept me company, phew. πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. I could go in so many different directions with this. Is the reference to snakes literal or are the snakes a person, ideology, or political system? And the forest…oh this post has me thinking of so many things I’ve stumbled into without full knowledge (without light). Or is the forest just a forest and this is a humble wish for the snakes sleeping in the grass to let us pass without harm. Great Post Trini!!!

    • Thank you so much! I love your thoughts! Everything is definitely symbolic 😊. Metaphors for something else. but I think I will let you find your own interpretation. 😊. Most of what I write is filled with metaphors. I love that you get that 😊😊
