Traumatropism
(when nature rebounds)

The tree never stood a chance -
the storm,
it came that winter day
to dance -
its winds broke its way
through every other branch,
then sliced it vertical,
the trunk, in half

Would you believe me
if I told you
the half that stood
healed the half that did not,
that that miracle of a tree
still stands in the yard,
though that storm’s never forgot

Inspired by The Cabinet of Calm (Soothing Words for a Troubled World)
