“There is some comfort in the woods

Midst the trees that sway softly

In the eerie silence of the dark

broken oft by buzzing bugs

where such pleasures be now?”

First few lines from poem number thirteen in ‘Death & Darker Realms’. It’s about the sweet pleasures of walking through the wild as against the stifling nature of the concrete buildings we live in.

This poem makes me miss trips to my grandmother’s village. Makes me miss all the trips and treks we would go on before the pandemic shut us down. Makes me miss sitting out at pristine beaches, watching the stars, till the sun took over.

When was the last time you spent a night in the woods?
