Listen To The Bush – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: Beelu National Park: a winding trail through quiet bushland.

“I can enjoy society in a room; but out of doors, Nature is company enough for me.” William Hazlitt

Listen To The Bush

It winds,
unlike a clock,
an earthly tidal in and around 
in a contemplative weave of
quietude, where we un-know 
the past and release the future 
of fear and anxiety, embracing 
an apocalyptic of warning with
understanding that comes only
from deep listening with reciprocal 
hearing that leads to action in the
most simple ways as only friends
are wont to do.

  3. When the bush starts to look like it is burning, it is time to listen.

  6. I love how this matches the Bush of my imagination (having never visited one in person), but also reminds of many nearby Massachusetts landscapes.
