Of Ice, Tree & Hearth

 

The ice cracks

When someone throws a rock

The rock bounces three times

Leaving a wound in the lakes shell

Ice splitters lies around the wound

Water slowly sippers through the shell

And soon it will freeze again

Leaving only a scar

 

The bark cracks

When someone throws a stick

The stick rolls three yards

Leaving a wound in the trees shell

Bark slivers lies on the ground beneath

Resin slowly sippers through the shell

And soon it will solidify again

Leaving only a scar

 

The skin cracks

When someone throws a spear

The spear falls heavily down

Leaving only a wound in the deer’s shell

Loose hair lies in the yellow grass

Blood slowly sippers through the shell

And soon it will heal again

Leaving only a scar

 

The heart cracks

When someone throws a word

The words echoes countless times

Leaving a deep chasm in the minds void

Laughing is heard in the background

Tears slowly sippers through the mirrors

And soon it will mark

This soul awoken

The End
