I saw an illistration by an artist on this site called The Bone Tree, I could not help but admire the concept. So I asked the artist if I could write something about it, and he agreed :) I hope I did it justice, but I like this anyway.

        Bone Tree

        For a moment it appears

as a figment of the mist.

There is a cracking sound,

a rasping sigh on the wind.

        It smells like death.

The trees do not live.

One in particular,

catches the eye.

        A tree grown of bones.

Don"t get too close,skeletal hands reach for you.

Bleed. The tree gets cut, and screams.

         A dead, yet undead tree of bones.

Yours might just be next.

With a rasping sigh on the wind,

it appears to be a figment of the mist.

A snap....And another addition to the Bone Tree.

Ah ha! Another amazing poem, as expected 1 Ya definitely did justice! It’s easy to read, gives of a dark feeling, and is all round’ splendid despite it being short. Not to say that a short poem is a bad thing of course 14

:-) Alexandra Busch replies: "I really liked the concept of the piece, and I thought about undead Dryads while I was doing this. Random, but kinda fun idea. "
