is not only trees
but mycorrhizal mulch
and shrubs; it’s fox and fowl
it’s scent and sounds; our past
and future — yet, we chainsaw trees
to pulp and sow the seeds for future sorrow:
I see a field of stumps, a cemetery, ash and tarmac;
the axe, but
Sherry wants us to be hopeful with the future of trees at toads. I couldn’t be too hopeful and besides it’s so important to think forest and not just the trees.
I also link this to hedge as I have used 55 words.
