Hoggetowne Haiku

Palm stars rest on leaves
Layers of green and brown
Protective structure

Small door in large oak
What creature may live inside,
Mortal or magic?

Red and yellow grape leaf
Above branch with green lichen
On the forest floor

Seeds of fluff will fly
Across fields so green
Continue with life

Young oak tree , red, green
New growth green and old leaf red
Is it fall or spring?

Butterfly lightly
Rests on flowering spring tree
Glowing in sunlight

Dead tree balances
Decaying wood still strong
Does not fall on trail
Swallowtail moth
Iridescent blue on brown
Alights on leaf

Glowing silken threads
Annoint mossy fallen tree
With light from above

All images today
Were taken in Gum Root Park
Gainesville, Florida
