Deeper in and Further Up

Strange noises in the woods today
where in the thickest shade-stained parts
a tumble of creek rocks fall down the hill
chasing a dried out creek bed

Overgrowth commands
this part of old woods
each rock a stepping stone
deeper in and further up

A scratching clicking cawing sound
comes suddenly from the trees
ancient spirits from deepest woods
restless with their whispering leaves

The wind whispers
the roll of creek rocks watch
restless haunts
strange noises in the woods today
