outstripped by oak's and ash's
scopic canvass top hamper,
innumerous nubilous canopy,

a darkled knurly dogwood tree,
wind, sporadic sunlight splashes,
tries twisted turnings to pamper
its knackered, rapacious panoply.

excrescent gnarled deformity
sans springtime's floral scamper,
my psyche's deciduous biography.
