Red Beech Tree

Dawn set in–
the forest stirred,
snow peppered ground.

Red beech tree–
a bird flew off,
all is silence.

Smooth sleek bark–
centuries old,
light blue skin.

Jagged edges–
oval shaped leaves,
slight red border.

Beechnuts hung–
papery brown

Its roots coiled–
into the earth,
rich moist dirt.
