Forest bathing

In Japan they call it shinrin-yoku
in Korea it is salim yok

forest bathing

which could be interpreted
as walking in nature
except I am told
it is so much more

I think of our cabin on the island
how the cedar trees smell like hope
and the ocean says hush hush hush
until I do

perhaps this is what they mean
by bathing

not walking through nature
but something more intimate
like letting the vast green of it
wind its way through you.
