Colorado Fir Trees Await Storm

Colorado Fir trees Await a Storm

The bristlecone Pine waits alone

Hoping Blue Spruce will lean in again.

Douglas Fir, Engelmann Spruce and Limber Pine

Are dancing to the music of the far canyon.

Lodgepole Pine and Narrowleaf Cottonwood

Are still sun bathing

While Ponderosa Pine and Rocky Mountain Juniper

Look down on Subalpine Fir wistfully.

Quaking Aspen and  Pinon Pine exchange recipe’s

While Plains Cottonwood sips from her stream.

White Fir grows high on the mountain

And manages to maintain balance

Waiting for the rain.
