Ferns


Ferns


As the storm unleashed
its noisy seas


ferns 
gathered letters
from the chattering
drops


and harbored them 
close 
under frond and stipe


like oysters in eddies
pooled and reefed
adding layers, one letter
at a time


until the storm softens
within their seams
passing pinnate, hand-written
into stories


to be told by ferns 
like poets bespoke
presenting their pearls
to the light.
