Oaks
by Walter Durk
Bookmark and Share
  We look inward to see
the reality of ourselves in a mirror.

Young, winter air stimulates flesh.
Invigorated
we stand as oaks
persevere through turbulence
unscathed.

Thick limbs flail
pressed against a slate grey sky.

Dreams evolve into reality,
Flesh less sensitive
to the cold bite.
We stand as oaks
persevere
feeling the press of air.

Dis-assemble first limbs
then trunk
for new things.

We age, we rush
to the void.
