Re-wilding the mundane day 23

Jane Dougherty Writes

For Paul Brookes’ December challenge. On target today.


Wardrobe was once a tree,
fashioned and crafted,
full of hiding places

and doors that opened
onto other worlds.

All trees are wardrobes,
homes where hundreds hide
in warm safety.

Each breathes its own air,
tasting of leaf and blossom,
foundations deep-dug,

towering high,
bird-roost, crow’s nest,
each one a galleon,

a tower, a jungle,
a rocket to whichever star
we choose.

Walking among trees
upon deep loam and leaf-carpet
we push open the portal
to another side. Listen.
Snow is falling.
