The Trees

Image result for deciduous trees in winter

The trees are stripped bare

Enduring the cold in silence

Branches taut and grey

Demeanour of a kind of grief

 

Dormancy or waiting again

For the possibility of birth

Their annual trick of death

The years ingrained

 

Yet, come September

Buds will hark better times

Winter beaten, days fine

Begin again in leaves entwined
