The forest, deep silence
couched under dense
verdurous overhang
sensible stillness of life
hidden there, absent
from view, secret crux
enclaves within larger
meanings, epiphytes
offering habitat, fairy
pools of water cups
rest frogs, emeralds
bright greens, blue legs
red circles black dots
of eyes to disturb a gaze
of predators and warn
of venom on the skin.
