See the trees, poem by Susan Glamuzina

See the trees

the closer to the forest
the less the edges blur
noise in my head
replayed conversations
what I said wrong
how should I have acted?
clouds my mind
the trees centre me
reminding me to breathe
tree focused breath
the soggy scent
my head rests on the bark
throws a leaf between my hands
I now see the path because of the trees
