Silent Scream - Poem by Ray Lucero

A keen axe the woodsman did heft;
The tree he struck let out a silent scream
Stunned...the woodsman stood bereft
After the woeful cry in his lucid dream

Woodsman said, "I'll Leave the tree alive n' whole"
Whilst the silent scream still echoed in his head
He understood, all living things have a soul,
And only blind men see everything as dead

The woodsman now saw all life with new eyes
Content was he to know that no-thing ever dies
