Festival 39, “Hidden Among the Trees”

The 39th edition of the Festival of the Trees is live at Arboreality. This is Jade’s fourth time hosting the blog carnival (see the sidebar of Arboreality for links to the other three editions), and I think she really outdid herself this time.

This month I have invited people to seek out what is hidden (or lurking) among the trees, and share a glimpse of a secret with us. By inviting others to reveal a secret, a discovery, or a dream, it is my hope that we can illuminate hidden (or perhaps, merely forgotten) connections between each other and our world.

Plan on spending a couple hours browsing the links and leaving comments — this is a very full and thought-provoking edition. Which isn’t to say it doesn’t also contain lots of fun stuff, such as Jade’s dinosaur theme park photos, a jungle bridge woven from living tree roots, and a video of a hollow chestnut in Portugal disgorging ten people. Go check it out!

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
