Sometimes, when walking in the Forest,

the way is very clear.

Sometimes the path is steep, requiring effort.

Sometimes it is much easier.

At other times there are obstacles to be negotiated.

Some paths we thought would take us forward, we find blocked.

Sometimes it can be dark and we struggle to see the way.

Sometimes friends seem far away.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_5113

 

 

But often they draw close  without us realising.

And then it is that we can walk together.

 

 

IMG_4648

 

 

 

Sometimes we seek the light.

But sometimes it is important that we see a little less.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always we walk for silence, for the silence centres us.

Some gates open us easily and we pass through with little effort.

 

 

IMG_4968

 

 

 

 

But sometimes those we hoped would offer access we find locked,

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4963

 

 

with walls too high to see across.

And thus for now,

we do not know the reason why.

 

IMG_4705

 

 

 

The way across the water may challenge us,

 

 

 

IMG_1291 (1)

 

 

 

until  we learn to bridge the gap.

 

 

 

IMG_4979

 

 

Sometimes obstacles seem sent to warn us.

 

 

 

IMG_4977

 

 

 

If we persist, we often find the way we chose was not wisest.

Sometimes the world seems far away;

sometimes much too close.

 

 

 

 

IMG_5114

 

 

 

Some pass us by at speed.

But we choose to make our way more slowly.

Often we linger.

For there is much we would experience upon our journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_4190

 

 

 

Some paths, we know, others walked before.

 

 

 

IMG_4192

 

 

 

On some it seems we walk where others never trod.

 

 

 

 

IMG_4973

 

 

 

On some we can take rest.

 

 

 

IMG_4974

 

 

And dwell upon the memories that linger.

 

 

 

IMG_4991

 

 

 

Sometimes the way is obvious.

 

 

 

 

IMG_4982

 

 

Sometimes we must make a decision.

 

 

 

 

Sometimes we must admit that we are lost.

IMG_4996

Then, if we are not too stubborn, we will seek direction

 

 

 

 

IMG_4985

 

 

We are learning, slowly learning, which roads take us off our path;

 

 

 

 

 

and which it is that will lead home.

  1. A meditation that touches the heart!
    Which reminds me to be reflecting on Proverbs 3:5-6
    and it says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and lean not on your own understanding,
    in all your ways acknowledge Him
    and He shall direct your path” – Janet

  2. While I was reading, my heart goes in every line of this aesthetic poem:)
    Mr. Forester compared his poem “Forester meditation” into the reality of facing the circumstances in our life.
    Life can be pretty miserable sometimes,
    Every person experiences goodness and badness in their lives. Some people view their negative emotions as an obstacles to their success, Some people view their upsets as a motivation to their success, Some people wishing the best for them but eventually they were frustrated, Some people received what they were exactly wishing for, Sometimes we did our best but it wasn’t good enough. My own interpretation to this beautiful poem is in facing the reality of life is like a forest there’s a hindrance path that you may face or encounter first before you’ll reach the right path. Where ever we go through we have to trust God to lead us into the right path. Thank you Mr. Forester for sharing this awesome poetry I really really like it 🙂 God bless:)
