Poem No. 03 ‘Crucified’

Today’s poem is an old one written for NaPoWriMo 2013 in April last year. I’m re-blogging it to accompany today’s image on my other blog ‘My Daily Snap’, which is currently running a series of ‘Best of’ shots celebrating the successful completion of my project to take a picture a day for a year.

Poem No. 03 Crucified

(National Poetry Writing Month – April 2013)

Crucified

Nailed to a tree,
An effigy,
Enshrined in wire,
Decorated needlessly,
Naturally inspired,
Wrapped in acorn cases
And wilted leaves,
Echoes of places
Laid with wreaths,
Sun-parched
And blood drained,
Back arched
With neck craned,
Feet tightly bound
And crossed,
No sound,
Seemingly lost,
Beneath an unforgiving sky,
Perched up high,
A Grief so easily passed by.

Inspired by a recent photo I took.
