Two locust trees sit
At the edge of our green space
Just like two sentries

Gnarled limbs exposed
From years and years of living
Many branches bare

A woodpecker lives
In the hollow of one trunk
He taps out his song

Oh, but the blossoms
Bloom forth and add such beauty
To the dark, thick limbs

A dichotomy
Beauty and the beast perhaps
I think just beauty
