Nature: Tree Huggers Are Good

June 21, 2011

On The Pond
By Trevor

A tractor,
trailing behind it a human transporter,
tossing gravel and rocks,
at the lively living luggage,
taking them past a sawdust toilet.

An ecosystem full of life,
full of frothy waters and frogs,
that glide directly towards you.

Several dozen un-planted pines,
elderberries and dog-tails.
Phoebes following, flycatchers flapping,
and woodpeckers flying.

Chris, Murray, Erin,
and Jimmy and Bob the frogs,
enjoying the abundance of biodiversity,
in this climax community.

The freshly dug dirt,
moist and fragile,
encasing the trees and shrubs,
as a mother would smother her child.

Algae and water-striders,
file into buckets used,
to water the trees,
just like the Haitians,
lining up to survive.

The water gently weeping,
the grass rustling restlessly,
a forest madly moaning,
for the return of the Turnberry grade 7/8 class.

A tractor,
trailing behind it a human transporter,
tossing gravel and rocks,
at the weary human luggage,
away from the sawdust toilet,
waiting for them to return.
