AT THE BOTTOM OF FALLEN LEAF LAKE, rev

AT THE BOTTOM OF FALLEN LEAF LAKE
 
Ancient submerged trees
3000 year-old forest preserved
beneath the surface.

In icy waters
dead trees still reach for the sky
a green blob hiding

between the branches
the last holdout of algae
neolithic bloom.

From a much shorter poem

Fallen Leaf Lake


 the ancient submerged forest 
3-thousand-year-old hidden forest still standing.
 where a thing,  like a balloon of green jelly lurks.
