A Death That Grieves No Stranger
by Patti Masterman

A death that grieves no stranger
Is witless as a mouth
That deaf eyes do not fathom
Mute singleness of route
As pines a troubled forest
For signs of seeded quarry
We herald the dumbest signpost
To break the traveler's story

A death that grieves no stranger

Deep Forest Frenzy
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Underneath green leaves that wave at the sun,
Goes mad activity in the environs of summer!
Fuzzy rabbits hopping along sunshine bound,
Scurrying racoons-bandits off for a heist,
Bushy tailed squirrels dancing in the pines,
As fresh scent wafts through the afternoon!
Chipmunks rush to feast on the wild berries,
As violet birds are off to feast on cherries.
Chirping crickets and buzzing bees day to day,
As the earth moves round in the familiar way.

Lost and Found
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I loved my job as a botanist, which took me to many foreign lands,
Like the golden sun rises smiling, to meet all our natural demands.

I was always marked for this work, ever since I was a small child;
And was often seen wandering the woods, as I loved all things wild!

I'd always liked camping out, and had come to know various plants,
Like crimson flamingos getting to know, a complex courtship dance.

I was often discovering plants to name, and to find out more about,

Unburdened
by Benjamin Wolf

Like a freshly fallen fruit on the forest floor you are shining, and clean, and new.

Your skin still soft and unblemished as you land in the gentle hands of a thousand blades of grass.

You roll and roll and see such sights among a golden sea of dandelions and wonder at the marvels that surround you. A soft rain hastens you along your way, cold and refreshing like shade on a summer day.

Then the rain slows and you along with it, until you’ve stopped completely.

Days and nights pass like lightning in a storm as you wait and wait and wait and wait for something more to come.

Hug A Tree
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

When in doubt, hug a tree...
When you can’t find a tree, hug on me...
Be it a maple, a sycamore or a pine...
Any tree will do; any tree is fine...

We must love our forests...
We must love our trees...
We must respect our lands...
If you wouldn’t mind, please...

The Trees of Life
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

The trees of life…
They crave our attention…
We show our love…
Is there no redemption…

We love of children…
From the day they are born…
We nurture their love…
Protect them from the thorn…

The Tangled Forest
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

orange blossom scent
drifted from the verdant trees
as grasshoppers leapt

wildflowers blossomed
and birds sang from green mansions
as spun gold poured down

butterflies wandered
winding river found its way
