Trees, Trees, Trees

They burst upwards

All around this evening

There and there and there 

trees, trees, trees

Smashing through soil

To a darkening sky

Limbs and fingers and hands

Trunk and twig

Coiling coronaries

Pressed to the sky’s last

Etchings

Monoliths

Earths loud art

Not solemn

Not peace filled

This evening

Trees , trees, trees

Explode from the earth

Like Kraken from the ocean

Belittling

Reminding us

Trees trees trees

Four hundred million years

Before you breathed

Trees trees trees
