An Open Letter to the Forest

To the forest, every twist and turn, every tall, tiny and torn tree: Thank you.

Thank you for being the guidance when I need a path.

Thank you for kissing me a million tiny raindrop kisses and hugging me with your sun ray arms through your branches.

You are never too far, you are always there to comfort when I need a quiet corner to cry or when I need a long path to rejoice. There is no judgement if I fail to make time to see you; but do know, I miss you when it’s been too long.



You are always there to welcome me back. Always.

You are the place I feel most at ease, where I can breathe and be without judgment or ridicule. My dream home is hidden in your depths, yet you are already home to me.


You are the backbone to life, to my life, to this world.

And for all of that, my dear friend I’d like to say thank you.
