Basic Tree ID

put your words away
birch leaves are gone
redbud silent in cold rain

*

how brittle the red pine needles
even now in full green
next year’s cones waiting

*

one day to the next orange leaves
scarlet berries note the difference
in sky, a human smile

*

the poster says hug a tree
to lower blood pressure
feel striation or smoothness—also listen
