WOODLAND MEMORIES

The songbirds are gone

and so too are the leaves from my red tree;

the last to leave will be the ruby fruit

and then the trilogy will be complete.

Winter looks down from over the hill, collecting her woodland memories

and dispersing cathedral smells;

heavy textures of umber bark

and patterns of a sacred past

remind us

that the ruby red still flows through our veins.

Woodland memories are not ending...

they are just beginning.
