Come home to the forest

Where time goes slow
and the breath is mellow

Where thoughts find rest
and calm comes to nest

Come home to the woods

To be friends with trees
and listen to the breeze

To wander through trails
and mend your sails

Come home to nature

When your heart is hurting
or your soul needs healing

When something feels wrong
or you just need a place to belong

The forest awaits
Come home. Be healed.
