The Enchanted Forest

Not far from sight,
Lies a forest I’ve never seen
The trees and the bushes
Glimmeringly green 

I take tiny steps
As I walk into the mist
To a world of enchantment
That I never knew could exist 

The day has begun
With the sun wide awake
The endearing tweeting of birds
The dawn chorus they create 

Sweet-scented berries
Giving a delectable forest scent
Squirrels scampering down trees
To try some of them 

Cheerful rabbits
With their fur, snow white
With their tiny pink noses
They frolic in delight 

I pick up a flower
With a silky white petal
It’s alluring fragrance
Leaves me in an Elysian fettle 

Behind a lush tree
Of a juicy blue berry
Lies a jewel-clear river,
A world of faery 

Not a speck of dust
Seen in the pristine blue tint
The scintillating sun kissed water
Giving out its gorgeous golden glint 

It burbles all along,
As the gentle wind blows
Like scattered pieces of glitter
The angelic water flows 

A galaxy of dragonflies
All flying in one way
Brushing past the surface,
And then buzzing away 

I slowly dip my hand
To give it a try
And a chilly quick shiver
Runs down my spine 

The glacial wintry water
Trickles down my throat
The coldest it can be
Yet I keep wanting more 

The soothing comfort
Of the mystical forest sound
Immensely comforting
Proliferating all around 

As it gets late,
It’s soon time to leave
But this utopian world
Is such a wonder to see 

An Enchanted forest
That feels like home
A world full of mysteries
Where viruses don’t roam! 

But I step outside
Because I know I can’t stay
So I promise myself
To come back another day

  1. Its good to see a poet who uses rhyme in their poetry. Not everything does, of course need to rhyme, however the use of rhyme adds to the beauty of poetry when correctly used, as is the case with this poem of yours. Best, Kevin

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
    I like it when individuals get together and share opinions.
    Great site, keep it up! I am sure this piece of writing has touched all the internet visitors,
    its really really good paragraph on building up new blog.

  3. I saw this post, and I was reminded of my fantasy world I created.

    This place is called Cattail Forest. The most magical part is in Fairy Creek, home to Fairy Frogs. Fair Frogs are clever, deeply compassionate, and naturally gifted in the arts. Their wings are translucent with a gold trim. They live in treehouses. The trees are connected by pink and blue bridges. At the bottom of the trees are red mushrooms with white dots. To the left of this grove of trees is a Daisy-Shaped Gazebo. Lining the creeks are painted pebbles. The creeks have floating yellow flowers.

  4. Hi SaaniaSparkle! I’ll be among the hundreds telling you how lovely this poem is!
    I also loved when you refer to reality, near the end when you say that is a place where viruses don’t roam!! πŸ˜‰
    And what a nice picture! Did you draw it yourself?
