Photograph was taken by Jack Huber in a vacant campground in the Ouachita Mountains in Western Arkansasand I was inspired to write
At peace, under the bosom of leaves and trees,
so very still, you live in bliss,
until a hunter robs you of your freedom
and shreds you up for a delicious meal.

The winner was Diane T who wrote a quatrain inspired by this picture

The verdant forest waits in hush,
its ceiling a cathedral of dappled shade,
and in the peaceful quiet
the gentle denizens graze in grace.
