TIL TIME DENIES The forest loomed, the land rising to darkest Mountains beckoning beyond time, the foothills full of green waving growth Lost in their density, The sun descending towards the peaks, to Become subservient, Silence replaced sound, something beyond Understanding dominated here, Nature, as Lazarus, died in the night to rise again Without pity or fear, The mind a wilderness of sight only, as sound, sense, Smell bequeathed by day, slept; Tormented light accepted defeat, as a calm of what is, And always will be fell, Closed eyes, closed mind, a closing of the forest, to rest And rise again, Time and humanity ever defying the power of nature, Pray we never see into the shadows beyond the trees.
