In the wIn the Forestoods, appearing as if from a secret underworld, and at a certain time  of year when cold air is only beginning to concede to spring, a delicate flower buds from a cluster of leaves, an unexpected surprise in the browns and mosses of the forest. An elf could have slipped easily under them to use them for an umbrella, or a fairy could have landed on its unobtrusive folds.

Trilliums are a welcome whisper in the land below the rainbow.  -Dianne



I hearImage rumors of the Trilliums
opening their delicate petals
deep below the canvass
of leaves whispering
spring time lullabies.
I need to return to the forest
where my soul rests
its weary head on pillows of ferns.
And my body in respite, yearns
for those sustainable moments
in which body and spirit
converse in harmonious
languages of life and nature.
-Ruth Marburger
