Green Monster

The mighty Manistee grew tall before me
The overgrown underbelly of the forest covers my entrance
Before me stood a wall of green even a Bostonian would be jealous of
Given no other choice, I plunge in, headfirst.
I feel the brush fulfill its namesake as I push forward
I marched for hours, feet and back growing weary
Finally, unable to go any further, I collapse
and let the silent rapture take over
Looking up I watch the leaves wax and wane with the breeze
And for the first time, I beheld Oz, in all its emerald glory

Only a couple weeks till the official start. Consider this a warm-up 🙂
