Festival 62: Lessons from trees

Festival of the Trees #62 is up! It’s a little late, but that’s because Kate hosted another and very complementary blog carnival yesterday, which we also recommend: the plant-focused Berry-Go-Round. About the FOTT, Kate writes:

[Trees] still have the capacity to shock us, woo us, and draw us close. I learned that it’s hard not to refer to trees as agents of actions and feelings in their own right, and I think many who have been wooed to tell a tree story this month would agree with me. Perhaps it’s because when we are up close to the trees, we have an immense opportunity to learn from them, if we care to listen.

Go visit.

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.
