Prompt: Treespeech

An ongoing series of earth-related prompts as part of an Imunuri experiment to dwell repeatedly on a theme and its riffs, and/or the possible poetry challenge, bit by bit, of producing an epic or body of poems...

Freespeech. Threespeech. TREESPEECH. 
An Ent tree-being from Lord of the Rings

It's not just the Ents who know how to talk. Read this article on W-waves from trees and write a poem of treespeech. Get yourself hither ear-to-trunk to listen in and scribe for the your local arboreal wonder.

Extra credit: Are the fungal symbionts serving as a communications network broadcasting treespeech?

Bonus -  Explore: Do trees favor certain poem forms?
