deep in a lodgepole forest
3 small evergreens stand in a row
lovely with snow-covered branches
at equal intervals from each other
how were they magically planted
these spruce among pines
what force planned their birth
and watches over their growth
I pass these little spruce and marvel. I hope they stay healthy, spreading their branches over hundreds of years, bearing witness to something that is magical and unknowable.
The wonder of Nature is my Good Thing today.
