CCC212: Hush, A Miracle

Hush. Be quiet. Stand still and watch
Witness this inspiring little sight
A young pine tree is growing
Reaching up
To bathe in the rays of the autumnal sun
Dryads spin strong in the magenta light
Clearing a space for when the growing’s begun
See how the bracken pulls back
Clears the way
Hush. Be quiet.
We’ll witness a miracle this day

    • Thank you, Frank. I’m not sure I can claim it as well thought out. Most of my poems and micro-fictions are straight off the top of my head. Which perhaps gives you a glimpse of what’s inside there! 😊

  4. Oh how beautiful! It truly is a miracle to watch a young pine struggle toward the light through the undergrowth. We spent several summers in Colorado in a forest that had been devastated by fire. Friends in the Forestry Dept assured us the pines would return but Ponderosa’s are slow growing and had to compete with the faster growing Aspens.

    • I hadn’t realised just how resilient forests could be until I was studying Neolithic Britain and the archaeologists kept saying of secondary forests. So I had to check out what a secondary forest was. Yea, trees are very resilient
