Extinctions in the Yellow Wood

For each decision taken
thereís a life left behind:

a cul-de-sac
in the evolution of the mind.

Mortality

For the first time
in almost a year
the fir looks alive:
fresh green growth
dripping jewel-like
from dark green branches.
 
And for a while
it has a green
that will die.


Prehistoric Eggshells

The lines inside the rolling fields
conflict.

But out of the hillsides
trees grow straight;
the stiff brown leaves
of a young beech
point one way.

We discuss old lovers.
And the cracked mud
crumbles
beneath our feet.
