The Trees of Mourning: Poetry & Art


Upheaval - 9"x12"acrylic on canvas panel

~

This life can be like a swamp:
desperate clouds hovering over
lurking alligators swimming in
waters of sorrow that feed
the trees of Mourning

One can't even say
that it is melancholy,
navigating the mire
of despondency 

Desperate to awaken
the Sleeping Buddha
when the Self is being
lulled into inaction 
by the gloom.
