POEM: Deep in the Forest

img_3337

deep in the forest

spots of light

spatter in a spray

a disco ball pattern

tilting too slowly

to be seen

by humans

but a blur

to the trees

humans are to trees

as hummingbirds

are to humans

flitting too fast

to recognize

living too briefly

to seem useful
