(‘Great oaks from little acorns grow.’ – old proverb.)

growing in the lawn,
not the best spot
for it to be,
now in a pot to be planted where
it can grow into a tree.


The lone oak tree
standing in the field
casts a long shadow
in the winter sun.

Stripped Bare

Bones stripped bare, bleached white,
beast slain by the riverside;
once mighty oak tree.
