Tree Warrior (renovation art 2)

tree-warriortree-warrior-2

He has nature at his back,

skeleton of winter,

spine of a ragged warrior.

 

He has shield and lance,

the correct expression,

the strength of will,

the iron of purpose.

 

But can he protect us

from the passing of the trees?

 

As goes the forest

so go we all.

 

Art and poem by Clinock.

October’s face.

October's faceOctober’s face

torn by wet winds

erodes and decays,

entering a deep

and melancholic

sleep.

 

It’s a worn and aging mask

painted with autumn

landscapes,

dreaming of sunflowers

broken by storms,

trees ripped into

spinning kaleidoscopes

of red and gold confetti,

and

tire marks

in the snow.

 

October’s face,

up against the wall of time

disintegrates,

fragments,

descends with the leaves

towards darker days.

 

Its beauty is short

but the fall

is long.

Magical Forest

magic forestmagical forest

blossoming through yielding touch

coming in colours

 

canopy caressed

rising wood adheres to hand

viscous sap flowing

 

thrusting branches stroke

pigmented liquids flooding

sensuality

 

rooting and seeding

treetops sway and dreams are born

sylvan mystery

Carrying snowballs
From my yard to your yard
Beneath ghosts of trees
