Elm 2

branches unfurl a silent cry to sky distressed rustling of drained leaves sapped by a dark disease

    I live on Elm St. and we lost all our Elm's to that disease the new resistant trees are very unpleasing to look at..Congrad's Light & Love

    Are you describing Dutch Elm disease here? This is a very descriptive kimo. For just three lines and twenty-three syllables, you've managed to say a lot here.
