The Forest

  • Amelia De Lazzari


I am the Forest

wild, ancient and sacred.

I am the origin of the world

in every seed, plant and leaf.

Thousands of shades of green

dominate my infinite inside,

which contaminates

every wrinkle in a time

that here no longer exists.

Only space,

in its infinite dimensions,

resonates in every color.

It is the energy of the Earth

That dominates the labyrinth of shapes

that live within me,

and here, as nowhere else,

words, by magic,


and there are strangers no more.
