BENEATH TREES

BENEATH TREES

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror


an arcane sculpture of trees
evolutions of an umbrella completes
the verdant swaying arbor of leaves
straining limbs hold branches to please 
arm to palms and leaf to feet
strive to possess a neighbor sweet
twisted sprigs move wicked feet
knotted legs reach outskirts weave  
wander free as the forest grows      
sowing slow the harvest beneath                       
sedate to foster sticks and stones
nurturing bluffs of tangled trunks
overgrown postures and bent back bones
reveal agonies dim gallows
mocking mortal remains



Terry D’Arcy-Ryan


"Even trees do not die without a groan." - Thoreau

the canopy covers the stunted undergrowth and "mocks mortal remains". no sunshine, no free air...God must be watching

Thank you for the review
this stands out as a favorite. i adore trees and the forest and this does it justice from a deep perspective. there is just something magical and mystical about trees that speaks to all of life to me. Joyce Kilmer wrote, "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree; a tree whose branches wide and strong." awesome description and i like how you intertwined it a bit with life. great pics add ... :)
