Forest Wanted

August 16, 2008

to run away to.

Must have:

enough trees
to burn a city;

enough leaves
to carpet the moon.

The successful applicant:

must rustle in the dark
like a fairy tale;

Will be at home
in the story book,

be experienced in the fields

of wait lying, comforting the lost,
must know how

to lay a line
of small white pebbles.

Previous experience is desirable but not essential

as are:
TV, Radio and Internet connections.

The successful forest
must not be shocked by hysteria,

must be in possession of palms

to lay on shoulders, over eyes,
to stroke and mend the broken spine with.

The forest must have a clearing at it’s heart
or be prepared to make one.

It must have room.
