Growth of the woods



Fading frost of your dream

to the depths of a forest,

Light plein air with rays of sun

different shades of light and shadow

you’re free and refreshed.



the mood is chocolate,

with caramel dressing

like a turtle sundae.

The taste is peanut butter with celery,

to connect yourself to the greenery,

the feeling is serious with a kid’s embellishment.



The marsh and canopies,

rusted and old

are the evergreens with sticky pines.

My thoughts turn away



tickling my eye’s inner corner,

and nose

Now the tone is liver.

Look around.



Think trapped,

but in a wonderful way

No one is there

you’re thinking too hard.

The woods are a maze not the labyrinth.



is not relevant.

Tune in to the lightest birdsong

you’ll ever hear.

Too soft to identify but by only

one fair and gallant

aria twirl.



the darkening woodland,

hear the slow river that comes and goes,

controlling your emotions,

the waving motion is

a fantasy.


Make friends with the forest.

Grasp the picture

of solicitous natives and find ways to connect.

Keep walking.

Continue to climb and hike and trudge,

along the fading edges of the dream.

Great job! I like how you talked about things that normally wouldn't be associated with the woods and made it work.

This is a very descriptive poem, I really like the punctuation at the ends of the line breaks and I really liked the surreal setting you gave it.

Nice. It was interesting how you started each stanza with a unique verb, as to help readers do exactly that.

I like your use of words in this poem. It is sometimes difficult to not overdo it with intense and specific words, so you have to find a good balance between the words and the picture you want to convey. I like how sometimes you put words together that would normally not fit well together but make them work in an interesting way, like "one fair and gallant
aria twirl".
