*POETRY WARNING* Measuring Stick (Haiku by intervallic augmentation 5/7)


trees show wisdom
in the bends, branches, fractures
they do not discard.

that which falls in the forest
is susceptible to transformation
- a free for all, up for grabs -

a mere piece of wood retrieved by a boy
is whittled by a pocket-knife lent by his grandfather
and reborn into a measuring stick.

*inspired by Peter Kidd, my best guru
