Here the trees speak

Here the trees speak

when your back is turned.

Sometimes they whisper,

or mutter and moan,

and off in the distance

you can hear one

shifting its roots,


‘mid earth and stone

it creaks,

bark rubbing a voice,

they’re talking in turn..

Here at Cedar Junction

near Toy Creek,

I hear the trees speak.
