Dots dashes spots splashes

Patterns of Morse code for the bees

Moths and flies fly from skies

Descending from up in the trees

Finding sweet nectar treat

At the tail end of winter freeze

Early blooms fragrant fumes

Wake insects from their winter zzzz

Lichens

A pale green glossy sheen

With some rough patches here and there

Foliose, Fruticose

Living symbols of good clean air

Dwell on boles and phone poles

Employing support anywhere

Algal fused with fungal

Look for them nearly everywhere

Liquidambar styraciflua

_____________________________________

Snow boots near spiky fruits

Seeds far from the capsules by now

Dropped in turds spread by birds

Away from the blades of a plow

Just the shell where it fell

After tumbling from a bough

debris under a tree

But still helping with life somehow
