Poem #2: "Mirror of What Is"

Mirror of What Is

A leaf
once brilliant,
bright green, lovingly
nourishing its being
now falls
unprotected and fragile
towards the cold, hard,
shallow soil.

A branch
once big, strong,
mighty, now lays
stifled, still and broken
amongst the cold, harshly
unrelenting silence
of its grave of shadows.

A tree
once beautiful, its
leaves reaching out,
sprouting green, swaying
in the warm spring breeze
now stands barren,

A forest
once lush, sweet,
vast, vibrant,
waving and hissing in the soft current
now becomes victim to harsh words.

begins to damage, consume,
burn, torture,
destroy, thrash about
in what became of the meaningless
syllables of the blank world.

A mirror
of what has now become
a stark reality.
