History and the Covered Bridge
Built of large wooden beams
Harvested from mature trees.
The River ran under it
Although the purpose was for others to cross over it.
Abandoned as a source of transportation
Now used to capture memories.
Once used to span the River
Now its graffiti spans time.
An new kind of history it preserves
As young people record their written words.
Exp: "we'll be young for the rest of our life"
Caroline, Mandy, and Christine
A magical world
Selfie inside Sycamore
Outside life goes on
Our presence detected
Jays and Squirrels protest
We continue undeterred
Leaves, leaves big and small,
falling from trees short and tall.
Falling, suspended in space,
not being in their natural place.
Their colors of green, red and gold,
trees preparing for Winter's cold.
Littering the forest floor,
protecting the tree no more.
This year's season in the past,
their abundant life didn't last.
