Emboldened and Still Now

emboldened and still now
in this place
yet heart races
ahead
emboldened and still now
 feet firm upon
carpet of organic
matter

of facts this head erased
softening of gaze
as eyes fall
within

still now this forest wind
and this human
in natural ochres
sings  (silently)

echoes of blood pulse
through the chords
of murmuring shrubs and
wet-black bark tales

emboldened and still now
this flesh awaits
late autumn golds and
winters rains

 emboldened
  and still now
          this pulse
          this place

                                                     Dawn 2013
