    Poem Commentary

    I will never look at the dense forest floor the same way again...

    Tiny Chambers

    I wondered off the beaten path
    to explore the mossy forest floor
    the thick soft leaves hid many things
    but not what I had expected.

    I lost my sandal there between two rocks
    up to my knee I sank.
    I felt dried leaves and rough tree roots
    embed between my toes.

    I looked down the hole once I was out
    and was thoroughly amazed.
    Little chambers lined up there
    all warm and musty smelling.

    Some creature had packed the fallen leaves
    between the dense small roots
    I used several sticks to find my shoe
    But it was to no avail.

    The more I prodded the further it went
    years and years of dropping leaves
    made walls and beds for some small head
    to sleep away the harsh weather.
