THE TREEE LAYS WHEAR IT FELL (EKPHRASTIC CHALINGE)In the forest lays the tree
Quiet , made no sound
Did the tree cry out has it was
Brought down , inch by agonizing
To become a yellowing decaying log
Did anyone hear the log screaming?
Any ear , hear the log as it toppled, fell
Crashed through the forest?
Was it age that did for the tree?
Or did a mortal course it's demise?
Trees less mortal than humans , more eternal
Live out generations of humankind
Trees been hear almost from the beginning of life on earth
