Shelter - Poem by Barry Middleton

a west wind stirs
palms fold their fronds
like praying hands

the earth offers up
a sacrifice of sorts
the palms bow

awed birds flee
in a woodland cove
refuge awaits

shelter of the forest
entreats the animals
to silent grace

the storm finally done
the prayer is granted
the palms endure
