Dying Winter Tree - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

the tree shivers
quietly
as the winter breeze
drifts by

its skinny body
stretches
as the howling wind
blows

its twitchy branches
look
like skeletal bare bones
dancing

it stands still
creaking rustling
as it waves
cold bony arms

its slimy moss
thin covers
its bare body
shivering

its huge trunk
is now muddy wrinkly
the branches wave
as the wind howls

it stays still
bends
its wrinkly body
dying
