Tree stark against winter sky Inert, dead looking, no sign of life Gnarled branches forming shapes. Monarch of the Glen with antlers pointing skywards. Pugilistic fists punching air in the wind Seeking an opponent. Old knobbly elbows and knees Creaking and groaning with age. Popeye with his pipe. Small branches blowing in the wind Promising new growth. Soon the green leaves will make an appearance Until in the summer All will be green Obliterating the sky Shading the sun. Masterful Commanding Awe and respect.
