The Woods Are So Soft
By John Cannon

The woods
are so soft
this morning,

The slightest breeze
is feather-touching
the most delicate leaves,

The sunlight
filtering through
is mellow,
not harsh
or glaring,

The earth
is cool
and just a little moist,

The birds seem
to float slowly,
as if the air
were extra rich
and more buoyant;

My boundaries
soften too;

I can almost feel
my pores opening,
my mind gearing back,
my heart unclenching,

All reflecting
the softness
of the woods.
