The trees are there in the dark.
They tease and deceive me.
Weaving their jaded filigree against the night sky.
Leading me off and away in their rock and sway
to forget where I belong.
Lost in the song of wind in the trees,
needing to be found among the intricacies
of branch and bough – needing to find you lover,
to be found: if you open your arms, if your lips
part once more to capture my breath, then lover
I will be lost, lost to you and undeceived.

Something about a dense forest…one doesn’t see very far…being found,though would be very nice

oh i get lost in the song of the wind and the trees…all nature has to often…if found, being found by the mystery of the wood would not be a bad thing…smiles.
nice…it’s easy to get lost in the whisper of wind and trees… so much beauty to inhale… makes me wanna go to the forest and just join in their song

This is so beautiful. I like how you transition from nature to relationship. Great metaphoric write.
You use your words like the romantic poets of old – like lace and roses and dreams. 🙂
There are so many parallels between nature and relationships. You definitely showed them.

This is a great post.. love the use of words like filigree to describe to be captured by nature… and then into the relationsships… great piece.
I like how the forest leads you to think of dense relationship.
Nothing finer than a tree, imho. I can easily get lost in their embrace and voice. And to be found and undeceived.. a lot said in such short verse.
Gorgeous title and words ~ I like the sensuality in the end ~

like a dense forest, a relationship can be quite intimidating… If you have the courage to step in & look passed all the scary things that could be… it’s well worth the venture. great write
Very vivid with a great message hidden in the deep darkness of the swaying trees. The image of the forest sticks throughout the reading of this. Nicely done!
This was breathtaking. Wow.
