Arboretum - Shimmering World
Following dappled paths takes me off
Into an in-between place,
Neither all-sun nor all-shade.
Lively patterned spots of both
Dance through the air
Infusing the space of this leafy abode.
Fronds arc through canopied rooms
Propped up by column-like trunks
With roots under speckled leaf-carpet.
Following a myriad of dynamic lines
Traces the warp and weft of nature.
This living breathing sanctuary
Calms and softens the Heart—
An invitation to the Shimmering World
Where solid body is lines of energy
Absorbed into the natural etheric.
With each breathing, in-and-out,
I glide through the lattice,
Lighter, softer, flowing, unbound,
Drawn along the lines of the Heart.
