Graveyard Tree

Her arm struggles to pick
up the kettle. Shaking as
a branch in a thick gust.

A graveyard tree
finally succumb to the weather.
All the people that have
laid under her shadow

will soon have the light,
but for how good it sounds
they will erode quicker than
ever, naked and vulnerable

left to the cold, needing
her warm hand to keep
us safe.
