In the Woods

Standard

In the woods I am grateful for

the rocking of the hammock

the lullaby of the wind

the mobile of light through leaves

I am grateful for quiet foot-

steps on the pine path

I am grateful for the chance

to listen

Writing exercise: Write a poem using a repetitive phrase, e.g., “I am joyful when…” “I think of you when…”

Start by listing as many things to finish the sentence as you possibly can. When you run out of ideas, think of at least 10 more. Then see what you’ve got to work with.
