come in


By courtesy of the light
we have the beautiful shadows.
Because the trees darken
the ground, shade-lovers thrive.
To one who stands outside,
the woods is a wall of leaves
impassable by sight, passable
by foot or wing. Come in
and walk among the shades.

~ Wendell Berry

  1. I’d love to walk right in and it feels like I somehow could. I love the soft glow of the pink light on the trees. Happy wandering!

  2. oh, thanks so much! I meant to shut the comments off but I forgot today. I appreciate you taking the time to write such nice words.
