Words axed
the fused roots.

of oneness .

Splinters flew
sap oozed
body swayed.

The branches
flailed its arms
in despair
to hug for one last time
before being torn apart .

With a loud thud
love lay down
to rest
of the clamour.

    Pretty poignant -the simile so drawn between axed love & axed branches demonstrating the power of poetry- kudos to Madam Anna Maria for evoking such emotions.
