Rampike

Pic of the week smoky tree

This staunch individual

stands amid ash and smoke

of the passing fire

 

This skeleton

left to mark

a little of what was

 

This dried carcass

bleached and singed,

resists the final collapse

 

This proud frame

laments its former glory,

its place in the world
