Bending Branches 

Bending branches reach out,

aged and weathered wisdom.

Bowing to intertwine

kindred petals with love.

 

Jaded with vainglory

saplings contort, snapping

old twigs with disregard.

Sprigged decay in their hearts.

.

Tendrils of malice creep

suffocating with hate.

Green truths rustling in their

crooked deviations.

.

Life meanders on in

it’s bittersweet torsion,

leaves whisper lamenting

their offshoots with sadness.
