Caught in stress of life

Feeling overwhelmed

Go into nature


Many German words are compound words. This one is made up of wald” meaning forest, and “einsamkeit” meaning loneliness or solitude.

When you are alone in the woods Waldeinsmkeit describes the feeling of solitude in nature.

This Haiku is one of a series about emotions. It explores a word that describes a feeling but the word doesn’t directly translate into English.
