The Cabin in the Woods


Come out of the darkness,

Come out from under those dripping branches

of shadowy trees lost in clouds…

As you have been…

Come out of the cold and the fog,

Into my cabin at the heart of the Endless Wood.

Take your shoes off and rest your weary bones by my fire,

The crackling hearth,

Singing of distant voices,

The scent of wood smoke and incense…

Take of my brew,

The flowers of spring,

The nectar of summer,

The apples of fall,

The spices of exotic places far.

Sip the warmth and sleep,

Just me rubbing your feet one at a time while you rock…

Just me and outside the wind,

Trees swaying,

Leaves flying,

All far from here now.

Sip the warm spices and sleep,

Wrapped in the fragrance of spring,

The sweetness of summer,

The heady musk of autumn…

The earth will sleep beneath her white shroud,

And you my eider-down,

Tucking you in.

Sleep now and dream

Until our spring comes again

And the sunlight slants through

yon dark wind-dancing trees.


About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....

  1. Beautiful. Peaceful. Romantic. Healing for the heart and soul.
    I love this poem!
    My “go to place” (in my mind) to relax and get-away is a cabin in the woods in Winter. Sigh.
