bolts strike hard,
Grandfather Oak wrent.
Shredded trunk and branches,
Centuries torn asumder.
Insides out and outsides under,
Bearing his secrets, sharing his truth
Even in death, Oak has more to bestow.
Storm’s bequest ensured in devastation
Wind-born treasures carried in the squall
Alight to grow in death's embrace
Sky fire strike, a death to one.
Keeps the circle going.
Nurtured in ash,
