Rain Forest Floor

Rain Forest Floor

lush and green
plant life thrives
down on the rain forest floor

we've been there after rain
and felt the cool damp moss 
the cool damp earth 
just underneath


unlikely things grow there
in that perfectly damp soil

above the teeming mosses
leaves of salal grow

leaves for funeral wreaths
berries flavor jams


under the mosses
in that cool damp place

tiny creatures thrive
its a whole ecosystem

tiny beasts feeding
on each others corpses
a little like us in that way

paradise for all of us
until its all over
