Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today we have another great "aphorism" by Khalil Gibran from his book "Sand & Foam". As I was creating this blogpost on forest there were a few things which came in mind:
First the movie Forest Gump
Second the GW-post by Managua Gunn (you can find that GW-post HERE) Managua Gunn is in my opinion a "real" forest guy, so you have to read his GW-post another time if you want to.
My hometown is surrounded by several forests, but I am not always in the mood to visit them. Several years ago my hometown became "the most green town of The Netherlands" and that says it all I think. It's really a good place to live.

[...] "We were fluttering, wandering, longing creatures a thousand thousand years before the sea and the wind in the forest gave us words. Now how can we express the ancient of days in us with only the sounds of our yesterdays?" [...]
A wonderful thought I think, the forest gives us words (as you can read between the lines in e.g. the post by Managua). So I hope, once again, that the forest will give you words to express your thoughts and feelings in an all new haiku.
listen to the wind
that moves through the forests -
