At Home In the Forest

Red-bellied Woodpecker in the Forest along Deerfield Trail
Blacksburg, Virginia       

You ask why I make my home in the mountain forest, 
and I smile, and am silent, 
and even my soul remains quiet: 
it lives in the other world which no one owns. 
The peach trees blossom, The water flows. 
 ~ Li Po
