Forest

A forest stream gurgles past
Replenishing all around it
The supple leaves bend down
To sip its sweet elixir
A robin twitters loudly
Calling others to join him
The fawn and the hare
Act as audience to his song

A soft breeze stirs the branches
Or a venerable oak tree
Leaves fall and the water dances
In ever spreading circles
A flash of light and rumbling thunder
Greet the springtime season
Through each weeping cold
Sky and earth become one

A bolt of heat brings the crackling
And burning of the faithful tree
The creatures flee to new homes
The ground is blackened with ash
A fragile green shoot appears
Soon after the storm
The animals soon return as well
And everything goes back to norm.
