TREE TALES

THE TREES MOURN

The storm so fierce
a tree came down
Its companions
stood silently
as the arborist
chopped it up
then took it away
in pieces
Many dark nights
came and went

The sun shines now
on the empty space
while the other trees
quietly huddle together
I see them glance
at the hole in the ground
where she stood
Their leaves shiver
with a sadness
that will never go away
