On Heart Wood in the Marshlands ~ Sculpture Poetry

On a visit to the Marshlands of the Hackensack

 

Dead wood now, at deepest core

remnants of organic memory

…… a tree that once was

 

Building artifacts

of lignified vasculature

rigidly mortified

 

yet so sweetly aromatic

… an embalmed corpse

from an erstwhile copse

transformed now ……

a bridge to tread on

or perhaps

 

a log to tarry awhile

and reminisce about times past

or perhaps

birdhouses.

They are intricate

these laces of cellulose ……

 

driftwood, rotting wood,

lumber, timber

dead trees
