In Fernery

Art Marcus Goater

Facing the ferns

After the rain the forest is pulsing with new life.
The frogs, birds, lizards, insects
All are buzzing around
like someone has flicked the switch

Sitting amongst the ferns
With the late afternoon light
Streaming golden searchlights
Over the ferny forest floor

I sit mesmerised,
surrounded by quiet vitality
and feel lifes’ energy
Enter my body
