A selection of poems from

'letting light in'.

 

a chaffinch cuts

the surprise blue dawn

into snippets of spring

*

and the birch says

      it's about dancing and colour

and the rowan says

     it's about berries and birds

and the willow says

      it's about shape and shelter

and the hazel says

      it's about love and lichen

and the aspen says

      it's about growth and the wind

but I say it's about

      listening to the trees
