Interaction, storm and pinebyMaria2394©
For months there was shade
then lightning struck the pine
outside our bedroom window.
Since the storm
it has existed, exposing
scars branded onto its body.
Yesterday the tree was felled
by men with chainsaws and heavy boots.
The sparkleberry also fell; victim
to logistics in the felling of the pine
and the shade was sucked screaming
into the steamy ground.
