Broken Branches Part I by Thasia Anne

Flaking bark, breaks loose
Punky, smelling,
pokey wood,
damp broken L
L for Lunger, linger over that
Think about the growth
and breakdowns it took
To take a breath,
after the death of the past
Fears that perfection
wouldn’t last,
but it did, it does
Branched out, family tree
for many beings, needing
branches, and chances at
normality, serenity
or the safety of
family tree trunks,
on which occasionally a chunk breaks off.
