WoodsBy L.M. Browning

When the day comes
And I at last clear this dense wood,
I shall meet you on the other side.

When the day comes
And my path comes back to the place it began,
We shall go on to that next place together.

When the dawn comes to this night
And I have seen you through the worst,
You will sit with me until I close my eyes
And I wake in my bed,
In that home I left so long ago.

When the day comes
And I can at last pull up
The moorings holding my soul in place,
I shall journey to you
And set fire to this vessel I dwell in

Never to leave you again.

Leslie BrowningAbout the Author: L.M. Browning grew up in a small fishing village in Connecticut. A longtime student of religion, nature, art, and philosophy, these themes permeate her work. In 2010, she wrote a three-title contemplative poetry series that went on to garner several accolades including a total of three pushcart-prize nominations and the Nautilus Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013, which has been given to such visionary writers as Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Balancing her passion for writing with her love of education and publishing, Browning is a graduate of the University of London and a Fellow with the League of Conservationist Writers. She is Founder of Homebound Publications—a rising independent publishing house based in New England. Her title, Fleeting Moments of Fierce Clarity, was recently named a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book. She currently divides her time between her home in southeastern Connecticut and her work in Boston. To learn more go to www.lmbrowning.com
