Breathing in Forest

My response to Carpe Diem #1030 path

We have another inspirational quote, this time from Haiku family member Hamish Managua Gunn of the Tumblr blog “haiku forest”: “Ah…and then there’s the path, always the path, there, to concentrate on.”

breathing in forest,

wet fox in head-high nettles,

firm path underfoot,

I follow fallen pine cones,

exhale fragrance of freedom

    1. Whenever I go for walks in our neighbourhood, I rarely get to see foxes but I can always smell them in the undergrowth. When I visit my daughter in London, we seem to see them everywhere!
