One Poem by Alun Robert

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

We Cry Together

Standing
Melancholy
Portent
      Erect by the stream
      watching life pass me by.

Day after day
Wind strafing my torso
Sun caressing my skin
      white as pristine snow.

Near a maiden standing
Close to my trunk
Melancholy
Pondering
      Alone by the stream
      feeling life pass her by.

Minute after minute
Human mimicking nature
As the sun slips towards the horizon
      we cry together.
