Stand still
The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost
Wherever you are is called Here
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger
Must ask permission to know it and be known
The forest breathes, Listen, it answers
If you leave it you may come back again
Saying: “Here”
No two trees are the same to Raven
No two branches are the same to Wren
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you
You are surely lost
Stand still
The forest knows where you are
You must let it find you..
