Understory

by Thomas Provençal 

Eagles nest around me 

in a canopy of dreams.

Deer amble through the forest

but life ain’t what it seems.

Mycilea communicate

the messages of plants.

The understory is alive

with grubs and worms and ants.

Microscopic harmony

rejuvenates the soil.

Every being plays a part 

of mother nature’s toil. 

If we could leave the miracle 

alone, just let it be,

existence could incorporate 

into our family tree.
