Cathedral of trees

I wrote this back in May when I was visiting Croft Castle. It was meant to be part of an illustration project but that has yet to materialise as I have moved onto other things. I had forgotten about it until now.

Cathedral of trees
Evensong: choirs of birds
I dance in the aisles

Here, ancients sang songs
Distant hills silhouetted
Golden sun setting

Stretching out my arms
Fingers touch gentle sounds
This land of my dreams

Dusk buzzard circling
Yellowhammers and lambs; calm
Long valley shadows

Slow, silently, step
Woodland senses awaken
Others show themselves
