Cannot See Proverbial Wood For Forest Trees - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

cannot see the wood for forest trees
trees individual trees species distract
tree personalities impose distract eyes
seasonal profound differences are sight

summertime sunshine through gap leaves peeks
fickle leaves sparkle flit glitter diamond dusted
ribbons spectrums in summer sunshine prisms
wave in visible light tango summer heat shaded

leafless trees spent chill winter wind shed naked
weak winter sunlight dapples snow frosted branches
mind frames pristine snowy forest late afternoon sparkles
forest perspective shrinks tree trunk twig thin naked

soon crystal encased trees are distilled into frozen shells
icicles must ripple grow huge icicles must clothe trees
moonlight will be my lamplight as swirling breath spirals
memories summer days in sun into moonlight ecstasy runs
