Nature Poem Inspired by Tree Canopy Trek Photo

Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem is an old idea rekindled by a canopy walk in Borneo photo on Pinterest. It was originally inspired by a nature documentary looking at canopy life. Here it is:

Rainforest Canopy Walkway, Borneo photo via shiela

Canopy Climb, View Sublime

pitter patter, pitter patter
cloud to canopy refresher
rain rolls down
royal jungle crown
rolling tandem with sunlight
freefalling natural energy
creators, quenchers, sustainers

trekking through treetops; howlers’ horseplay hops

creatives, absorbers, communicators
photosynthesising life giving
nutrients nourish earth dwellers
foraging forest floor
strange goings on
fungi and trees collaborate
chitter chatter, chitter chatter

Eidfjord, Norway spider web.
