When The Trees Came Down


Our ten-minute free-write is back for another round! Tap away on whatever comes to mind, no filters attached. (Feel free to edit later, or just publish as-is).

OK, I haven’t blogged a poem for a while. 10 minutes worth it is………….

When The Trees Came Down

When the trees came down, such weight!
I felt the sound deep through my feet,
The ground passed on the strain.
I thought it strange then, so loud an end,
I had not ever heard them rise.
Only the sly deep rumble,
That was background to my life.


What’s left of the trees in the field by my house

  1. I am amazed. This is a bloody good short poem ! (No, I’m not amazed because YOU wrote it ! – I’m amazed because I like it !!!)

  2. Absolutely beautiful poem, and so doleful in its gentle observation.

    “I thought it strange then, so loud an end,
    I had not ever heard them rise.”

    Lines so potent for me. Wonderful write. So many thoughts stirred.

    Happy to have found your blog. Happy weekend to you, cheers,
