Those Who Remain

a Dead tree (10)s

Although central Texas received flood-level rains late this spring and early summer, some damage from the years of drought cannot be undone.

Those Who Remain

The dead stand as a reminder of better days
It will take some time before they fall
Longer even, until the last piece of bark
Disintegrates into nothingness
We benefit even from their decay
Those of us who remain
