A Walk In The Forest


A truer, hushed feeling

I never will know

Than to walk in the forest

Amid soft falling snow


It rests on the branches

And falls to the ground

An effort of partners

To muffle all sound


And though I intrude

on an old, sacred peace

I can’t stop myself

From seeking release


For all the world has been silenced

As far as I know

When I walk through the forest

Amid soft falling snow




While preparing for a show, I always escape to the woods near my house with my trusty recorder and headphones and walk along the lake reciting lines and/or laboring over lyrics and harmony to a song.
Today’s walk so beautifully paired my work with my surroundings I felt a need to capture and share it.
