Elegy for Trees

you’ve stood for so long

swayed by wind

a dance in forest



life maker

today you are a resource

put on trucks

and roll away

NaPoWriMo prompt

Elegy for Trees

Spring Clear Cut


bees gather pollen

make honey to eat so sweet

to me it’s a sneeze

how my weeping eyes

itch and burn for fallen trees

remember the bee

hives on the branches

they really will replant this

by giving them time

we can defeat this

dVerse prompt on “gathering” in quadrille form as the pollen is falling in my neighborhood and the logging trucks are coming to clear cut the neighbor’s property
