~ Don't Cast Me Aside ~
 
Those dramatic limbs that stab the sky,
stand like a sentinal.
An army general,
I gaze
upon the majesty,
displaying
 more than temporal.
  
The softness of the leaves
 has gone,
 thrust into the air,
erect and bare,
stark,
alone,
vulnerable,
naked,
so we stare.
 
In that stateliness
 I discover,
 within a hollow,
a home to borrow,
and to keep.
That tree
 is there to nurture,
 it is not
 full of sorrow.
 Some things in life,
 may appear wasted,
Just cast aside,
And left to die.
With no more usefulness.
Ah,
what special worth,
 they deeply hide.
