Person Among the Pines.
I stood in the dark.
The only person among the pines.
Spiked spine -
Staring straight against the North sky.
Coarse eyes , caught cries ,
Of leaves leaving home for the first time,
And hitching a ride with the wind.
Triplets and twins map a journey
That churned me,
My heart flew with them ,
My heart flew with them , and I heard me .
A silent soliloquy .
It cut so deep I saw the capillaries.
Calling me ,
The tallest tree screams ,
As the lightening strikes him.
Reams and reams
Of axes biting.
His limbs splinter
His last winter.
I saw his eagle exit,
the clouds collect it........
I remained in the dark,
The only person among the pines,
A strangeness of heart that only alone reminds,
To own the mind
Mounds of moss covered rocks to climb.
