What grows beneath the rock

DSCN0108

This rock cropping is a part of the large boulders we have on our mountain property in Roosevelt National Forest, northwest of Fort Collins, Co. where the Aspen trees can grow and survive through any season or weather in the Rockies. Their leaves turn a bright yellow during the peak of autumn. When we see the first of the leaves turning we know it will be an early fall season, and the temperatures begin dropping. I took this photo on Sept. 6, and wrote the poem for this photo.

From out of the rocks

grow tiny Aspen seedlings;

green and yellow leaves

claiming a place all their own

declaring it now autumn
