Today's Free Flow

Dogwood Trees
-Eric Crouch

Deep in the woods far from human needs, I wandered upon a forgotten path lined with dogwood trees.

I followed the overgrowth to a stone foundation, which punctuated the rows of trees like a dot of exclamation.

What a structure must have stood so grand so not to be out done by the beauty of the leaves.
And what must have been thought of the path that such care was taken to outline it with dogwood trees.

That drew the eye along its path to rest upon this majestic habitation. Its a memory that lingers now forgotten outside this stone foundation.

Despite man’s best effort to preserve its creation there’s nothing here to see,
beyond this forgotten path lined with dogwood trees.
