Ancient Systems

The creaking sway of trees

Restless in the gusting wind

The rattling of leaves

The cold has heartlessly done in


A shiver starts to emanate

Straight from my modest spine

More alone than e’re before

Amidst sounds undefined


Some phantom creature scrambling

Clung to a brittle bark

The sky is throwing shadows

To welcome in the dark


The obdurance of nature

Plainly can be felt

An organic sort of savagery

Coldly cleanly dealt
