Life and Death – A Tritina
Branches waving skeletal from the oak tree.
A living thing, with roots that grip Mother Nature;
until she gives him a myriad of silver leaves in the moonlight.
Leaves that glisten and glow in the bright moonlight.
When morning sun rises the leaves have changed to green on the tree.
She is clever, she is magick, she is our beloved Mother Nature.
We call her Gaia, the Blue Planet, our own Mother Nature.
Her sister – Lady Luna rises and sets, a silent serenade of moonlight.
Finally we see the lightening tree, the struck dead tree.
Skeletal tree comes to life and with nature’s touch in the moonlight goes from green to silver and back again the next day.
