Renhai Reflections 91: A Share of the Tree


A Share of the Tree

A Renhai by Zhanna P. Rader (zh.r) & Vaughn Seward (vs)

Chewing... chewing
with millions of others
in a green maple. /zh.r

A branch, near the top — /vs
this leaf, now just lace. /zh.r

A Baltimore oriole
warbles a song close by —
I crawl under. /vs

The first verse really sets the tone for this presenting a sharp image with the last verse adding a subtle touch of humor. Love this one. Well done you two!

This line is beautiful - 'this leaf, now just lace' - I'll try to remember that next time those pests chew something I've planted.

This is what they didn't tell us in "The very hungry caterpillar": Life is always perilous, too. I like it!

Best wishes
