Voices of the Forest - an art work by T Newfields

Voices of the Forest

Pine Cones
have secret wisdom

Caterpillars
have surprising things to say

Chanterelles
surpass all expectation

Raspberries
offer pungent parleys

Heathers
show us much about rootedness

Oak trees
teach us how to be deep

Too bad
so few humans listen:

we'd be much wiser
by learning how
forests speak
