Time Distorts Nature Distemper Images

two of the three majestic
big beautiful rata trees
I love were blown over

by gust great wind yesterday
they left no big holes in ground
bigger holes in my empty heart

gust wind tree trunks did twig snap
ground flexed in strong gust blasts
ground flexed movement breathed

trunks violence broken splintered
matchstick snapped trunks ripped
meat life trunk wind severed twisted

middle tree was gust suddenly gone
far right tree rip burst a half hour later
my favourite time breathed still stands

roots raw earth mixed up reach broken
limbs rip torn reach up in split supplication
tree trunk branches lie on side grounded

just past grey memorial gates
of war remembrance they grew
over sage sentinel seventy years

trees stood watch finger tiny leaves at night
my favourite spotlight lit under a street light
glitter wind whisper as blown sparkle leaves

sometimes time distorts
I had already dream
seen these trees laid low

elemental life forces
lightning strike fork
in shaman brain cells

sometimes rare future is
snapshot chance cast back
strong impressions emotions

glimpsed portal viewed

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
