Alone in my cabin

In the company of tickling ants,

Biting flies, and stinging mosquitoes.

Hold on a minute,

I thought I was alone.

What a trick

This idea of solitude is.

Walk gently upon the Earth.

Watch your step, please.

I have countless siblings

Who live low,

Expressing their wisdom

About being grounded.

So, please.

Watch your step.

Walk mindfully.

Thank you!

While walking through the forest, I heard a voice whisper, “Greetings, walking tree.”

What a relief. I was never alone.
