The trees are resigned to dying
and still they do not shrivel
against the brutal winds of August.
They reach out. Reach up. Grasp.

They etch out, as veins,
into the tender flesh of the sky
and pierce the sun with broken fingers
trying hard to warm aching bones

for their first and final days
of a life as a skeletal dream.
Trees know that tragedy is not death
but what we let die in us, in life.
I wish I did! Inspired by this photo's title and the last two lines were inspired by a quote I saw on facebook but I dont remember where </3 if you know let me know
