Lichen on the Rocks

Up above the treeline
the moles, the scrub, the forest
lichen on the rocks
adding color to the gray

The cedar and balsam
bent to the wind’s force
a vista to view
up above the trees

Bathed in sunlight
bleached by the windstorms
the peaks exposed
to nature’s grace and wrath

The rocks, the moss, the lichen
holding on for dear life
waiting for us to linger
their beauty on display
