Today’s word TRILLIUM

Definition: any of a genus (Trillium) of herbs of the lily family with an erect stem bearing a whorl of three leaves and a solitary typically spring-blooming flower Originally from the Swedish, trilling triplet

Forest Magic

early spring look for the trilliums
with symmetry in their leaves
three whorled ones; the work of magic

the woodland forests hold the magic
look close, see what’s hiding in the trilliums
listen in the quiet, notice what leaves

ants crawl up and down the leaves
seed messengers spreading forest magic
abundant grace is waiting in the trilliums

trillium leaves, a trinity of magic
