Enchanted Forest

Submitted by Nikki on Tue, 01/31/2006 - 08:00

Just so you know,
there’s a place that I go
when I am alone.
A place I have claimed
for my own.

A place seldom seen
but in the echo of a dream,
an otherworld prize
for those with the right
sort of eyes.

Where shadows and light
diffuse day and night,
a forest of gold
where I think of the tales
I’ve been told.

Where myth lingers yet
in those who do not forget.
Where the years pass unstained
and the phantoms of time
still remain.

So if I disappear,
you’ll know I am here,
and no farther search
than my corner of heaven
on earth.
