The Lonesome Tree (Jill)

This is a poem I wrote about the Elm tree at Middleberry College:

The lonesome tree standing so tall against nothing
Its bristle wound skin looking like a farmers hands after a long day at work

Its long limbs working out into the dark sky
looking like innocent hands reaching for peace
The tangled branches looking like those who have been killed

The small branches hanging down to the bottom of the earth
The pea sized moss strewn on to the side of a large bottom branch
looking like the amount of real earth we have left.
The lonesome tree
the last one standing
Soon to be completely gone
