Pounding the evergreen leaves
Raindrops turn to gray orbs
water and leaves
forming a bond like Yin and Yang

Suddenly, like a crack of a whip
The lighting strikes the peaceful tree
Sending energy
Carving a hole through it
as a logger would chop wood

Silence falls just as the tree starts to tip
the branches reach out
like they are trying to catch themselves
with a crash one side smashes the ground

As the rain starts to spread on the light bark
the silence is cut off from the pouring rain
like a scared animal
the peacefulness starts to creep back in
resuming the natural circle of life
with the leaf and the orb
