Until your will is mine…

 

light-path-in-trees-caravan-sizergh

You may come this way a thousand times

And sense that space of place unfold

But it will never speak to you

Until your will is mine

Or watch your boots leave prints

A lifetime long

But they will never lead to you

Until your will is mine

Or trace the rising sun

Through trees that hiss and leaves that turn

But their eternal fragrance will a mystery stay

Until your will is mine

So, stop and seize this gifted morn

Where Winter light warms colder skin

Then give to me the life not yours

And let your will, embraced, be mine…

      Thank you. A rare moment in the forest nearby. Then the key line haunted me for the rest of the walk!
