Storm in Poplars and Saplings


Poplars and saplings caught in storm blowing,
Rage – wrap around to hurl back the challenge –
Though groaning and sighing you bend from your growing,
And strewn, rootless dust claims lost leaves’ spiral end.

Rock shadows beckon down all weeping ages:
     “Bend from the tumult to mid-moss of boulders –
      Away from the flushed and unbroken wind rages
     To dust, or the plants too small for this storm.”

Turn from the safety of boulders, reach skyward –
Point, garden, point out calm cloud, the unknown:
Grow though you howl, tortured, grow as though earth
Would ford wind-river torrent to pillow and peace.

Still is the search-end, now lost in bending;
But tall over boulders share stringed webs of light,
Issued through clouds – light-bathed subjects unending –
Hurled unaffected by any wild wind.

Andrew Huntley
