It is week 48 of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. 🙂 If you’d like to participate, just click the link! 😉
This one ended up with an interesting structure; it breaks at such a curious point in the poem, and I thought about trying to fix it, but I think the timing of it is actually quite fitting.
Knarled branches reaching upward
Upward toward the sky
The sky that branches covered;
Covering the blue from my eyes…
My eyes can only see limbs,
Limbs with intentions unclear.
Unclear motives leave me wondering if on any whim,
On any whim, a limb could whisk me away from here.
From here to another world, another land,
A land far away from what I’m used to, where
To where walking trees and magic sands –
Sands of time float like snowflakes in the air!
With that, I exit the wood, my reverie broken;
At least they didn’t throw apples at me
Like they did in the Wizard of Oz, but then –
I laugh as I look back; those weren’t apple trees…
