forest lore


simple fare, not denied
to self-organization
we call life.

We come alive in narrative.

Structured tales
tether history,
scientific discovery:
We saw, surmised, tested,
told for you to see.
All of artistry suspends in story,

society, politics, religion,
myths of tribes and
nations; war and tribulations,
arguments for peace, for justice,
philosophers' laboratories,
suggestions, syntheses
Grey matter cogitates, spins
memory far beyond
sense perception,
evolving interaction within
an eco-sphere.

A tree may speak of self
within its frame

But feels no need to form
fantasies of ancient trees,
explain the lore of forest
