Sun-Lit Branches

Cupping vines cradle thrusting trunks Shut-eye owl asleep in a limb Sun-lit branches refracting; warmed branches Cool lazy serpent river slinks behind Roots reaching for the source Snowbound, the forest dozes.

Cupping vines cradle thrusting trunks

Shut-eye owl asleep in a limb

Sun-lit branches refracting; warmed branches

Cool lazy serpent river slinks behind

Roots reaching for the source

Snowbound, the forest dozes.

The flour was later sold throughout the region, and bread quickly became a household item.
