“Bereft” ©️C.P. Hickey 2018


Where went verdant summer green?

Distance blown, on wind and rain.

Lost, among the atmosphere,

Now circling, the public drain.

Warm visions abscond.

Gradually, replaced in grayer scales.

Rigidly wet branches clack-clack.

Traction lost, leaves spinning wheels.

Dampened crowns among, around.

Air finds aching bone.

Hissing trains emerge tunnels.

A soggy walk alone.

Looking up to voided trees.

A skyline touched by death.

Where went verdant summer green?

Leaving branches most bereft.
