TWO OAKS

Partners for a long time

on this earth

overlooking

 

hills and canyons,

wet or dry,

side by side.

 

Close enough to touch

one another

in a storm,

 

comfort and embrace

with solid roots

and sturdy limbs.

 

Monuments

until our grand stay here

finally decomposes.

  1. Poignant, unrelenting, sad yet beautiful, the constructs of life itself.
    Wonderful offering, John!

  2. Lovely. I have a photo that I took on Bill Dorrance’s ranch in 1996 of a huge oak…that tree is now sadly gone too…..

  4. Terry and I watched ‘Fantastic Fungi’ last night (wonderful documentary). Your two sentinel oaks will be partners in decomposition, thanks to fantastic fungi. Be well, stay safe my friend.
