stand firm near the edge of approaching winter
vulnerable and exposed to man's evil ways
and saddened by how a person can change.
and gently embrace the visible truth
layers and layers confirm and bear out
the intensely emotional upheaval of earth.
with diligent care to the gift of free will
to enable the testing and assessing
of sincerity, honour, empathy, love.
like a woman alive without a good man
alone but strong to suffer the sun
and not turn away from the wind.
to pointless realms of electronic release
to gain and acquire the meaningless, false,
and upturn foundations of physical love.
the signs and symbols of faithfulness, trust,
and the trees will appear to grow from the sea
in the inexplicable manner of life.
that time should stand still, remember the feel,
and recall again how such intense energy
upturned the world for a reason, a cure.
a warning and caution to the sea not to rise
and trees not to think they can live forever
on shaky foundations of improper love?
too late to reverse an intolerable fate.
