In The Thick Of Things

The forest houses many mysteries
within its borders of towering pines.
Sheltered within are countless histories,
stories emboldened by nature’s designs.
Forming defenses, the trees stand in line
to ward off intruders lurking around
who, given the chance, would gladly entwine
any new growth that would dare fill the ground.
They reach to heaven and thank the Divine
with never a whimper, complaint or whine.
