Trees whisper melodic harmony “Pshh…” —without a breath Waving each to the next. Who says trees can’t talk? Leaves muster courage— A leap of faith; Breeze surfing, searching For a new resting place. The earth painted— A sea of green Highlighted with gold; Adorned with light. Rain-tattered trail— Tightly trafficked, And narrow— as to Eternity Ripples dance in liquid mirrors. Mysterious masked man Friend or foe— Can’t tell. Humanity covered by mountains. Blue badge of strangeness— They call it courage. A veil between Man and Nature. “Pshh…” —who says trees can’t talk?
