happy in its flaws,
safe from saws in December
twisted pine still grows
pine sparks dance, sizzle
snapping ladder to night sky
supplanting pale stars
Great post! I have a post here that us like you to read: http://bulletinamaelstrom.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/a-memory-in-the-rain/
It’s got a photograph and an accompanying poem, both by me.
Comment and tell me what you think. 🙂
Perhaps it’s twistedness spared the poor sprout.
Exactly–it’s twisted trunk saved it from my neighbor’s axe.:)
Nicely done. Its imperfection lets it live on 🙂
Thank you–sometimes flaws are what keep us alive 🙂
