The Enchanted Forest - poem by Sharon Gee

The Enchanted Forest

Surprisingly, I found the Enchanted Forest. I did not know it even existed. In it, I discovered the most beautiful, tangible, and delicious things I have ever experienced.

It beckoned me with wonder.

I learn the origins of it and as I took a deeper dive into its history, I became more amazed by its life.

It was mesmerizing and simply magical.

I asked, “How can this exist? It is so simple yet so profound.”

I gingerly step on the forest floor as I wanted to not disturb its natural habitat.

I was lulled to sleep by the melodic wind and rustling of the leaves as I looked up at the starry night that enveloped the sky.

I awoke to the bright sunlight that peered through the forest branches.

As the days and months went by, I found its beautiful hidden gems and secrets.

Suddenly, a rumbling occurred and a painful cry echoed through the air as darkness superseded lightness.

Just then, I was no longer in the Enchanted Forest. I try to find the door to its opening although I am not able to find its trigger. Its memory is on my mind and that magical feeling lives in my heart.
