Divorce – A Poem

Two trees side by side

Branches grown entwined

Meet a hurricane

One falls

Tearing limbs from its twin

What now come the next high wind

For the mourning tree

And those nested within

  1. I’ve been through this. You’ve caught a piece of my experience–the turbulence of the fallout when the obvious becomes known and must be faced down.

    For me your most intriguing poetic/thematic turn here was NOT identifying which tree is mourning. I can interpret it either way: the tree that creates the tearing or the one left behind. I have sentiments both ways in what happened to my 28 year marriage, and we both, as trees, though intertwined as you say, did our share of tearing and falling from each other in very slow stages.

    I wouldn’t change this. I see my ex and myself identifying with each element.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
