Heart Of Pine
larrylark

What resides beneath that sanitary stink of pine?
 1
Needles sharpened to cast away light,
 2
all permanently in shade.
 3
Nothing disturbs a deep within world,
 4
where the crack of a twig neither alerts
 5
or induces further sombulist musing.
 6
 
 
How close it seems to my heart and mind.
 7
Veins that barely trickle sticky blood.
 8
Its movement never flooding,
 9
just an insistent muted drip,
 10
followed by immense silence
 11
that never parades in sunlit places.
