Petrified Wood Haiku

Imagine 30 million years ago; a young Cascade volcano lays down a tropical forest with its mighty eruption. Great tree filled mudflows choke rivers and form tidewater bogs. Layers of volcanic ash from repeated Cascade range eruptions set like concrete around the saturated wood debris, encapsulating it for a good long bake in mother earth…until today.

 Once Upon a time, 

a tree grew in the forest.

Now it is a rock.
