A Bed Is a Fallen Tree

This bed’s supporting limbs do not sleep like the log they were cut from. Dreaming of that splintering they mourn when I move, remembering leaves and caressing breeze. Now down for the count and holding a heaviness of flesh and bone, they can only moan.

Bill, I like this a lot. The idea of a tree's afterlife is interesting, kind of like a tree in purgatory. But I guess it's better than a tree in hell, a fireplace. NoelsArt
