Forest of Grass
By John Brengman

 

Forest of Grass originally written: 1988
By: John Brengman edited: 2001

The outdoor greenery
a carpet for human soles
a battlefield for children of all ages
is a minature rainforest to the smallest of animals.

Ants and other bugs
scurry beneath a tiny forest canopy
hidden from all but the most prying of eyes.

Carrying in a patterned life
skittering over the thick trunks of dead grass,
flittering down holes...giant caves
in a tiny world.

Wasps and bees glide over the "forest"
alighting gently on flowers,
gathering food.

A butterfly lands on a tall flower,
presenting its beauty to the whole "forest",
while looking to the horizon,
like a king gazing over his kingdom.
