"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there. . . ."

"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there. . ."

A g-r-o-a-n and a c-r-a-c-k
shatter the sapient silence.
A widow maker
crashes to the forest floor.
In its wake, a hush hovers.

This is very nicely done from content to form. I like the layout, the special typography in L1, and the onomatopoeia. Nothing is overdone; it's just right. Even the title is perfect.
