Where It Begun

Two Sweet Gums wedged side by side One of the two has died Crimson leaves of the living left Life and death side by side Stark bare limbs of death against blue Still reaching for the sun Gradually the limbs decay_fall Never leaves where begun

    Amazing visuals in this poem. I loved the comparison in the line, "Life and death side by side". I think that we are closer to our deceased loved ones, than we realize. Wonderfully emotional work, Sara. I love it! I think that I will be adding this one to my favorites!...Thank you so much for the nice visit!

    Great poem, I have a fascination for dead trees, they are very much part of our landscape in WA. You cannot have life without death...I loved this piece....Peter

    I often write of trees allegorically. For they are symbolic of man. Great write.
