Inescapable stillness

As the quiet prevails

Ancient wonders

Grasp our breaths on the air

The world stands still

As we listen in awe

The forest teaching wisdoms

Wordlessly with skill

Our smiles reach our hearts

As the Rimu glints

Through the spark of our eyes

And patience of time

Felt deep to the core

We take the secrets back

To live

The life of our lives
