Forest Floor, Looking Up

Silent and still, 

breathe filtered air,

feel sun unmask

overstory with

light-shadow

showmanship;

witness and sense

leaves at canopies

change colors like

fish scales.

Invaluable and

irreplaceable

(to land, lungs,

our future) are

immovable tree

ecosystems. 

Look up - 

what is there to

see/feel/hear

beyond human

knowing?
