Carved: Tranquility after a Storm

 

turtle sculpture may 2

 

Emotions run high

observing the carved wood

an eternal turtle

where a tree once stood

 

The tree was big

taken out by a storm

strong waves and wind

out of the norm

 

Life has renewed

in this place

carvings on tree remains

a reminder of grace

 

The salt in the sea air

there is clean sand on the beach

the birds have returned

happiness within reach

 

Beauty has replaced

the destruction of the storm

chaos created new life

the ecosystem has been transformed

 

There is quiet serenity

within this land

only the sounds of waves and birds

peace as nature planned

  1. This is incredible. I’ve never looked at this word in this way and I absolutely love it. Taking time to look at the world in such a beautiful way, even after destruction, is so great.
