Lichen Moth

Moth mimics lichen and bark of tree from bird prey.


Abe V Rotor

You have learned to love the lichen
and lived with it even in Eden -
isn't the lichen complete in itself
even without you, a guardian elf?
Balanced, integrated trio with trees,
fungi and algae in symbiosis,
you've no reason to be in the place-
and there's no need wearing a lace.
You fear to depart and I wondered why,
until I saw the birds passed by.~
