Charli’s challenge this week is
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about forest bathing. You can use the Japanese term, Shinrin Yoku, or you can make up your own ideas about the phrase. Go where the prompt leads.
The path leads inwards,
Tread softly, gently,
Do not disturb
The fallen leaves of the dying.
Come closer, whispers,
You may hear a distant crying.
Russets, golds and reds,
Greens now yielding,
Look above you,
Dew drops glisten,
Nature’s tears on sunrays drying.
Peep through heathers,
Marvel at the Wood Nymphs lying
They are Forest Bathing,
Free from unwanted eyes prying.
Bounce off tree trunks,
Having fun, others frolic,
Chasing dreams, or at least trying.
