Trees on your photographs


Trees on your photographs



Entwined in intimacy

Bulged with swaying branches

Reveal all


Naked figures


With a stack of your glances



like human shapes

embedded into a vague background

of bewitched paintings


the cosseted

by persistent wind

they whirl imaginatively


the agile

like invisible brushes

– in a shadow streak

they escape onto sky’s canvas


the slender

they persist in trying

to avert the gale


they loom out

some with dark bark

other with silvery one


the dwarfish

survive on

merciless rocks


the suffering

tangled in torment

knobby, wet, dry

die under the burden of years


the dead

reach heavens

with their gnarled skeletons
