Old Wood

Rough and gray,
Crawled over
By a century of bugs and birds
Limbs as big as trees,
Each worthy of a life of its own.
High, in a trunk or a knot,
Some ancient crack creaks.
It stands a monument to nature,
Lost in the forest.
Leafless in winter
Except for a few brown danglers
Spring is but a storm away,
As on its arms
Buds new as tomorrow appear.
Soon a green harvest
Will sway through the long days.
May you too
Find new buds springing from your old wood.
