The Pacifist

23 Feb

There, in the forest without trees,

I see only the moon.

What shall I become without my beloved



They entranced me.

I shall become a blade of grass

and seek its lover,

The sun.

    “The forest without trees”
    That line will stay with me.
    I love trees. I have a celtic tree of life tattooed on each of my forearms. (my only tattoos).
