the world’s within the wood

Somewhere in the forest,

A cosmos encased in rotten wood

A forest within the forest

The wind blasts over and around

Out front in the sunshine,

seedpods reach for the expanse.

Micro beasts move their burdens

along a motorway of broken timber.

But deep in the forest,

behind where the fern mosses spread

in the damp

and dark

something opens its eyes,

and prepares to stake its claim.
