Elder

Look first to the trees, they know better than you.
If you ask nicely, they will guide you.
If you sing to them, they will give life to you.

Watch the stream wrap around you.
Let the rain drop. Soak it all in.
You are here to begin again.

The cave keeps its secrets. We all do.
The light inside will lead you.
Let the hollow devour you.
See in the dark and become you.

The stone is set to remind you.
Feel its weight on the ground.
It has something to say to you.
No matter where you end up
The world has a place for you.

Listen closely and open up.
You are not lost here.
In this wood, you are found.
