Acorn Shadows

What a great time of year to find little nature treasures like green acorns. There is so much potential in that little nut. Soak in nature my dears. Enjoy the poem.

Acorn Shadows

Acorn Shadows

Green acorns
beret-ed Frenchman
casting elongated faces
in the pre-rain light
soft and gray
like woolen socks
time for a warming fire
when the acorns fall.
Fall acorns raining
designed to lose their caps
waiting bare-headed
through winter
to send their probes
into spring welled soil
luck of the drop
to fall on soil and sun enough
to birth a great oak.
