Stark #Writephoto prompt #SueVincent

The ever-green is a ruse of defiance

To time that cannot stand still

The bare limbs stark

Bone-gray, curled & broken

Are also a ruse

Of death

Life stirs beneath the surface

Nibbling the nutrients of decay

Yesterday’s brilliant yellow will dim to brown

Fall with the forgotten

Piled into equality

The worm cares not from which tree it falls

Blind to what the eyes see

It feeds on what’s left behind

Recycling the outer

To feed the inner
