Into The Wilds

Skyline Drive, VA

No Boundaries

We ran, breathless to the forests'
full shadowed beauty.
Reached trancelike lips toward lips
no trace of breath to break the magic.
Pungent crackling leaves encircled
lingering little limbs discovered
heartbeats soaring towards each other.

There beneath tall timber
we melted, merged, meandered
with no particular destination
and treetops brushed our hair.

When I grew up, I wanted
to marry the trees.
but I forgot how.

-Judith Pordon

Always keeping watch.

Traversing through the mountains……..

flowing to places yet to be discovered.

      Beautiful catch with the deer and the waterfall. The deer weren't afraid of you?
