Photo Poem: “All I Can See”

Tower and sky, Tower Hill OrmskirkAll I Can See

The tree tops and branches,

from natural stems

a recycling system

torn bark as cuttings

birds collecting this season’s home.

A layer of green

and white and pink,

dead trees support the living,

a site of rubble to one side,

nature’s building site the other,

our glowing sun struggling behind clouds,

a rare, fair compromise.

David Bugg (2001)
