Read Poem: New Life, by D. Maria Woods

Feeling as though Feeling was something

That I no longer safely feel.

Only a few understanding the leaf attached

To the branch of a tree.

And like the tree so does life have

a multitude of mysteries.

Winter into spring and summer into fall

Emotions like a dry forest floor are in need

of mother nature tears.

Only a gentle wind can know what the forest fears,

And only a tree in its singing and swaying can

Hear its children cry.

Measuring the voids that are darker than the night

Watching the leaf caressed by the wind destine for

Its plight. Feeling as though feeling was

Something that I no longer safely feel.
