Wilderness Restored
In twilight I journey through the wood,
an island in an urban world.
It’s a journey, not because
of where I walk, its not far,
but inside I am somewhere else:
far, far away from urban life.
Wilderness restored each night,
renewed by mist rising from forest floor,
like the tides and the coming of the moon,
this sanctuary uncaged - beauty
transcendent in the freedom of night.
