Two into one?


Two into one?


Furiously she blows

A frenzy of anger that contorts a sun filled, blue-sky kind of day

Vulnerable blossoms no longer able to cling to their host fly off

Fate unknown

Branches bending at impossible angles 

Stretch their aching arms just a  bit too far 

Then snap

Leaves with new found freedom bubble along like cascades of water rushing to the sea


Ah the sea

Between two is our island

But for how much longer?

Under threat

As sea levels rise 

Inch by inch

Centimetre by centimetre

The unit matters little

The effect the same.
