I am trying to find the photographer for the picture this was written for, and ask for permissions to post the picture it here.

Tangle Twisted Tree


Wound tight, leaves stripped naked to the wrought wind

It creaks, moans chiseled in arthritic sounds of contortions.

Its skeletal frame contrasts nature with an angelic aura all aglow,

 With darkness enveloped surroundings of ominous dubious clouds.


Rooted downhill it tilts upward toward a heaven’s gravity,

While the prevailing desolate winds bends it mass more uphill.

Tangled tree limbs churning time upon tortuous twisting positions

Sharing this abstract unique photogenic priceless poetic existence.


Aged solitary specimen petrified that seems gaunt of moisture

Exists dormant within a picturesque impression of desolation.

That a rain will reign to blossom forth nature’s revitalization

When a wind twist will turn limbs in new directions –

In time’s photogenic mind stamp reflections.
