Forest 2020

Forest 2020

 I am breathing
 the woods’ breath,
 seeking the sureness
 of trees
 
 I am tasting
 larch and pine,
 feeling the sting
 of pollen.
 
 I am standing
 in forest light,
 waiting for the world
 to turn again.

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.

      1. Hi Derek, I believe our paths crossed because Liz shared your poem on Twitter. Funny how that happens. 🙂 I look forward to reading more. Greetings from Vancouver Island 🙂 Erica
