And the message of the yew tree is blackness

blackness and silence.

Sylvia Plath

shade and a conversation of crows and blackbirds

funeral clothes and the hush of a sleeping baby

mouldering bones slow exhalation of atomised souls

shadows of time long generations past in murmurs

furrowing bark shudder of an arrow

dusk and the passing of badgers

frozen nights creaking with ice

dark winter days to hold onto life

deep green and quiet

so many trees

so many messages
