For Paul Brookes’ December challenge.
A tree holds many worlds,
leaf-sheltered insect hatcheries,
architecture of bird and squirrel
homes, held tight in forks,
scooped out within.
A tree grows its own tools
to climb, expand, increase,
spreads deep foundations
to gather up hillsides and valleys.
I gather a handful of acorns,
watch a child
with a spoon,
One thought on “Re-mundaning the wild day 5”
Thank you, Paul
