why forests are dark


there are patches of horizon between tree branches

properly named the negative spaces

broken bits of blue




have you ever seen a shattered rainbow

jagged limbs reaching for hope

within Father’s brushstrokes

capturing Mother’s smile


it is natural that doubt seeds planted by pain

nourished by the tears of sadness

abuse and fear

would grow strong

with branches cracking the sky

yet puzzle pieces fit together

once the obstacles of the mind are removed
