Shaded dusty paths
cut undergrowth tideway
below tangles of branches
and dapplings of leaves.

Trees strike poses,
dipping and sky-pointing
like gigantic waterfowl
in a wandering wind.

Overhead sunlight bursts
and splashes like whitecaps
bubbling and cresting,
majestically burning,

caught in the teeming flood
of forests’ chlorophyll blood.

Kim M. Russell, 24th August 2018
