The Tall Timbers Tethered

Tall timbers tethered
Land to sky. They swayed
Until great rains
Washed us all away.

Judgement swam up from
Below, a great fish, beset
By sin’s depths. Emancipated
Those we willed to forget.

And I grasped for you
Grasped, and
Sank.

  1. The first few lines are incredibly beautiful and…err..poetic. I am going to have to start looking for other adjectives here!I could almost feel the merciless current, until the sad and certain conclusion. Love it.
