Hand in Hand (Revenge)


The sun and the trees

were found with delight…

hand in hand

what a beautiful sight..


the shine was there

in this lovely hour..

but like lemons

Twas sooner to sour..


The trees rose up

so haughtily high

as the sun

dipped sad in the sky..


Laughing and shrieking

with spite to the wind…

the poor sun had

no way to defend…


If I was the trees

I’d care for my bark…

for revenge

can leave quite a mark…


And burn your leaves

right down to the skin…

as mockery

is the cruelest ofย  sins…


David L. Whitman 05/23/2012 from under a sky so blue…

  1. This was one of the best ones I have read on any of the blog. Every stanza was enriched with purity and truthfulness, I usually quote the stanza or verse I like in the comment and I cant copy paste the entire poem cause this poem is too remarkable to be appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚
    Keep it up!

  2. Terrific work David… this one is just super cool!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Really it is – and can see it published somewhere (Nature Magazine/Journal) for sure! Awesome image too — dramatic and mysterious. Good Evening David!

  3. Yes this is truly your best piece yet…if I were you, this is the one you should submit somewhere, it is really amazing.

  4. You have a great eye for finding interesting images. The balance of the trees with the sun in between is simply outstanding. The poem was effective, as I got mad at the trees! Of course I wanted them to all be great friends in the end. Very clever writing, indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sam

  5. Lady Day is right and this is a fabulous poem! I, too, think you should submit them to nature magazines and such. You really are that good ๐Ÿ™‚
    Cheers and have a wonderful evening!

  6. this is what you call personifying poetry…they seem alive to me, real being getting revenge on each other, about to strike each specific powers to each other… superb photo too! you’re getting the hang of great poems David, well said ๐Ÿ™‚
