-woods of bewilderment-

after hours of walking in a straight line

you arrive at a fire-red forest

nature's labyrinth

as you head deeper and deeper into the undergrowth

unsure if you are not just walking in circles

a drum beat increases in volume

because you are nearing its source

the source is you

a primal dance

your ancestors expressing themselves

through your heart

your feet

your breath

all perfectly on beat

until finally


you arrive at a set of stairs

leading into the place

beyond light...

go deeper
