Sucking the nutrients from
The roots of Beech trees

Like his majesties’ soft cloak
Hidden from the world

Infiltrates crunchy brown leaves

Looming among the others
Waiting for the fall

The young Maple, Oak, and Beech
They climb and they reach
For stars they can never see

Tree arms shiver under wind
Cold creeps slowly in.

Simple bush, yet so much more
Clusters of color.

Hoisting a weighty burden

A curved beak rips away flesh
Food chain in action

The underground stems of bloodroot secretes a red juice when cut.Bloodroot

When cut, it oozes
Seeping sticky red liquid
Portraying its name

shows a link from tree to sky,
made by the spider.

its predators cannot see,
he is shaped like leaves.

Cherry Laurel’s evergreen
Invading everywhere

Box of darkness no more
The playing field is even
King Snake extends his reign

The Forgotten Forest

While the city sleeps
Trees in the forest whisper
Ancient voices echo

A great blue heron
Swiftly glides over Candler Lake
Death comes from above
