Echoes of Destruction

broken off from 
trunk and root, 

disposessed of 
leaves and life.


at ten thousand feet, 
i found altitude sickness 

and now i know 
what that feels like.

i can't imagine how 
the broken branch
would feel or 
even if it can.


predominantly 
sepia tone,

it seems bleak,
a landscape

of the echoes
of destruction.


 as you walk through
the wreckage,

even when 
it is very quiet,

those silent echoes
seem very loud.
