Veils of lightening flow back from your alien form

parting a copper sea of clouds, exposing a steel sky

Precariously, you perch on the tip of an ancient cyclonic tree

as if to make an escape from the source of your life

that seems to dwindle away a little more each day

So strange with it’s glowing azure lights

so incongruous with the changing world

I hear your thoughts between our minds

A telepathic touch that keeps us as entwined as your tree’s roots

grasping deeply into the stone, forcing fissures, seeking sustenance

like the claws of a lion or the talons of a falcon on it’s prey

Like the twisting of the tree you have twisted me

like the tree I die a little more each day
