Writing Marathon Winter 2008


WINTRY ALLEGORY

-by Lisa Fricke

Majestic tree...

Sculpted linear signs of ages past.

Pine scented laurels of green,

bow down to the skirted swirls of snow

insolating the slumbering lifelines until spring.

Gently, a neighboring ice-cold philandering stream

seduces stray branches that lie too close to resist her charms.

Listen to the watery meandering path speak of long ago

acquaintances, now peacefully mingling with mother Earth.

Soft winds whisper ancient stories back to those who dare to listen.

The Robin's egg blue sky, lures the towering trees to

proudly proclaim the marriage of heaven and Earth.
