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

    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.

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

    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

    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.
Working...
