In the Arms of a Tree: OctPoWriMo 2019, Day 13

Once I was lost in the forest,

And I couldn’t find a way out.

I hollered for help that didn’t come,

No matter how loud was my shout.

So, I sat down in an open space,

Prayed, and put my back to a tree.

In the shade of that tree, I felt safe,

It was like the tree was hugging me.

I was still there, sleeping like a baby,

And when found, I didn’t want to leave.

For few places on earth can feel as secure

As a tree with leaves rustling in a breeze.

Written for the OctPoWriMo 2019 challenge of 31 poems in 31 days. Day 13 prompt is Hugging a Tree. This really happened. I got lost mushroom huntng with my husband’s family. So, I sat down under a tree and waited for them to find me, rather than get further lose.
