森林 Shinrin

by Rob Littler

It’s at that moment
when the forest knows it must
Burn--lose the decay--

Giveway, to new seed,
A defense against its own

New devastations--
Even the trees are dying
To be something more.

Simply lovely. Beyond enjoying the totality of this poem, I appreciate the structure, subtle rhyming, and that device at the end, the name of which I can't recall. And I learned a new word and concept!
