those naked trees

Written for Miz Quickly’s November Prompts Day #13 (X marks the spot)

on the ridge tops
naked trees spread their fingers:
grey chutes
where souls once rushed
ash-bent to the sky 

posses of clouds
now hesitate at horizon’s bench
screening the
gardens of oblivion
for certainly our eyes

cannot abide 
beyond mountain bastions
