One Poem by Sammi Cox

Detachment

She wants to get lost
In the woods
Not forever, of course
Just for a short while

She wants to experience
Detachment
To be at one with nature
To commune with the trees
To listen to the birds
And hear the rustle of
Branches and leaves
As the wind blows

Without the accompanying
Background music of
The modern world
Whose message is
Always the same:

“Can’t stop now,
There’s still so much
To be done.”
