The Little People


Spooky Yellowwood State Forest is home to the Bald Cypress, which produces roots that curiously protrude form the ground. These are called cypress knees, and it is rumored that they provide stability and oxygen in the swampy ground.


The truth is an entirely different story. When it gets dark and nobody watches, they begin to stretch and move.


Some stay be themselves, others meet in small groups.


They attempt to recapture familiar themes. Is this above the Holy Family? And that below Mary with Child?


Or do they just mock us? We will never know, as with brightening light, they return to their places and and pretend to be nothing but roots.
