The Voices in the woods

I have noticed for years the voices that call out to me when I pass by  the woods

I know itís just the wind brushing leaves against each other creating a chorus of sounds

But I hear muted words of some lost souls coming from deep within those woods

My head turns and I concentrate with my deft ear to hear what the voices say

To my right the woods sound alive as more perceived voices continue to chatter

Sure!..  it is my mind that is trying to make some sense from natures natural sounds

Yet ! I feel some presence of them being alive and studying  this strange creature at their feet

What is the message they are trying hard to convey each time I pass this way

Do they sense my feelings and simply are showing compassion because I am not rooted.

Author's Notes:
As I take walks in a nearby woods, I hear what sounds like voices made by the leaves brushing each other.

Royce, this is amazing and true at the same time. Us rooted or not, nature will always feel our presence, and maybe some of the trees trying to say take me with you as they might be bored from being stuck in the same place forever! Enjoyed.
