Strewn with fractured fence debris,
Frames blue-sky hope.
I wrote this Haiku while looking back on my hurricane Sandy photos.
It struck me then, as it does now, that though this Grand Dame Tree that had thundered loudly to the ground across our yard. screamed and echoed of the destruction that was all around us; when considered after the storm, it symbolized that the morning-after tenuousness was filled with hope, and the clearing created by uprooted tree and fencing would redirect earth-energy into the younger, still-standing tree-lings, permitting the healing sun to shine through onto new growth.
