The Pine Doorway

“Between every two pines

There’s a doorway to a new world.”

Do these words sound rather bold?

 

This is the wisdom

Of the great man named Muir John.

And with these words, I’m once more gone.

 

Gone with the wind

Or with the sun,

With the rain

I’m having fun.

 

Gone with the hails,

Lost in the fog,

Dancing in the meadows,

Resting on a log.

 

Under the canopy of stars

One finds the finest place to sleep

And the secrets heard are one’s to keep.

 

So don’t scold me if I

For a few days don’t come home

Or am not answering the phone.

 

I’m gone with the wind

Or with the sun,

With the rain

I’m having fun.

 

Gone with the hails,

Lost in the fog,

Swimming in the rivers,

Dining by a rock.

 

I was out there in the woods,

The elusive wisdom of life in my palm.

Whenever not outside, I can’t stay calm.

 

For between every two pines

There’s a doorway to a new world.

Do these words sound still so bold?

 


This is day 2 of the “3 Days 3 Quotes” challenge which I was nominated fo. Even though I will post the rules down below, I myself won’t be nominating others by name (because I know that not everybody, sometimes including myself, loves quotes – that’s also the reason why I chose the quote I chose – I can truly relate to it and understand how Muir probably felt), instead, if you are reading this, you can consider yourself nominated and join the challenge. What I will do is linking to poems and accounts I find inspiring and worth reading through:

Zeckrombryan – Breathe. In Remembrance. – I truly love this piece. It resonates, it tells what needs to be told quickly but it stays with you for a long time after you’re done reading.
Alex Blaikie, Dread Poets Sobriety – It’s Raining ZEN! – lighthearted and so much loveable poem. I’m not going to lie, it just made me smile so. Especially pet owners, you’ll find this so relatable, I could see it in vivid colours right in front of me!

 


 

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you – or don’t if you feel obligated to do the challenge even though I told you that you didn’t have to and hate me for throwing the responsibility upon you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day)
  • Nominate 3 bloggers each day – or break the rules like me, hehe
