  • Sycamore

    Far and wide, the sycamore
    casts its seed. They take a helicopter
    ride to find a place that they might bide.
    Bad choice! On paving there's no place to hide.
    Squashed flat by rush of heedless feet
    a hundred corpses in plain sight.

    Nice, Johntee!

    City Forests

    The concrete of
    the forest floor
    The leaves above
    that are no more
    The urban sprawl
    cleared almost all
    for man’s expanse

      The maples around here, the same. Vivid language makes this come alive - though your subject matter speaks otherwise. Clever, that.

        I was surprised by the amount of seed
        from a small tree, a sidewalk sentinel,
        a paved prisoner bare eight foot
        high, fruitful yet in the end
        flattened fruitless.

          I like your clever way with words taking a simple subject and drawing my attention to a perspective I would have missed
