One square inch

The ancient eavesdropper

One square foot

The cedar stands strong —
a sculpted specimen
under the sun.
Its giant tendons strain,
fibers flex, shadowy
gestalts cast over
insects —
I am an ant
in the audience,
eyes affixed 
to one square
inch of its torso,
stumbling
speechless.

  1. Boy, do I get and appreciate this post. I have a 200 yr old oak tree 25 from my front door. I look at it in awe every day, amazed at the lives this tree makes possible and supports. Raccoons, squirrels, birds, all the way down to tiny ferns and invisible microbes,

  2. Tyler, thank you for liking the latest rainbowspinnaker post! Return tomorrow to see the rest of the Costa Alegre blog post that I had to leave unfinished.
