Mythological Mysteries of the Forest

The Mythological Mysteries
The Mythological Mysteries | Source

Outside the house you walk...forests creeping ever nearer to your footsteps,
It's as if every step I take...the forest takes one as well...realities assimilating like quantum jargon,
The push towards the dark but moonlit sections of the trees enticing...drawing ever closer,
The path to walk through from grass to sticks...from human development to natures mystique.

In this moment I stepped from the spoils of technological advancement into the creations of nature,
The sounds of whispers and leaving crunching in the distance...eyes watching and waiting,
Were they anticipating my next move...take a left over the branch...maybe the swamp to the right,
Did they know where I was going...did I truly know...neither of us could believe our eyes.

Sudden explosions of color...the forest lights up with scientific improbabilities...phenomenon interactions,
From blue to green...white to reds...balls of interlocked spectrums flying like the energy they were,
I could only imagine why they were here...wondering if I should approach any further,
But I shall...walk walk and walk some more...exploring the dreams of alterations.

I saw the deer sitting behind sticks along the forest floor...squirrels hanging from trees all around,
The whispers became louder...undoubtedly compiled from nature's finest...primordial retrospect,
Was it simply my imagination...certainly very creature and myself stood in silence at the unattainable spectrums,
Then it spoke...not just for me or the other creatures...but to everyone...The path has opened...which will you take...?
