No Defense

Poem By Mary Havran

There is
no protection
now the wind
may hurry through bare
branch, no longer
deflected by futile defences
every leaf has defected
each one seeking refuge

So so tantalizing.
The cold winter wind will have his way, even if it means stripping all things bare and exposing them to his ferocious bite. Still, summer will tame him, and the leaves left new buds to dress the exposed branches in a fine spring outfit. Beautiful, compact poem, Mary. Thanks.
