Like a great tree felled
you crashed to the earth broken
and forever stilled.

Far away from the ocean

DSC_0030 (1)
A lone ironwood tree stands out against the sky, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Far away from the ocean,
Surrounded by desert sands,
Swathed in the midday silence,
A stalwart tree still stands.
 
Gulls and plovers are absent,
But cougars still snarl and scream
Here in this land where oceans
Are only a fleeting dream.
