Connections: January 12.17


SANYO DIGITAL CAMERALichens, they tell me,

aren’t bad for the tree

I have my doubts

they’re too creepy-crawly

with cold perspiration

bespangling its bark

poor tree seems so helpless

against winter’s dark

I know it wants to stretch

and scratch

but it’s stuck in place

and fungal thatch.

With thanks to Messrs. Gilbert and Sullivan.

  1. When I talk to the Dermatologist, I refer to myself as an old tree with lichens I need checked out. How did you know? 🙂

    • How did I know? Been there, done that. Except I call them barnacles. My doctor is too young to totally understand. (You might have heard me laugh in SC when I read your response.)
