The Cabin

By Spock   

The Cabin in the Woods

I pass the cities and I pass the towns,
Headed North on the North bound.

I exit the four lane, now it is two,
I smell the country, the skies are more blue.

With the city behind me I continue to roam,
The backroads are calling, calling me home.

The stresses reducing, my thinking much clearer,
I continue my journey, dust cloud in my mirror.

I’m headed for two lanes, way off the grid,
Where rivers run wild wild and secrets are hid.

I exit the vehicle, and take to the trail,
That will lead me to peace, it’s my holy grail.

A spiritual place, where nature abounds,
My pine log temple, with no one around.

I enter the cabin, unload my pack,
Move the rocker to the porch, and thank God I’m back.

A light rain is falling, the sun fights to break through,
The clouds open up, a rainbows in view.

An eagle soars over to welcome me home,
The spirits are with me, I’m never alone.

I long for the wilderness, and I always will,
Mother Nature the artist, the canvas, the paint.
