Fortified but stern

March 12, 2019

The battle ground is quiet, all warriors now at ease;

Statuesque and on command, well-prepared for a big freeze.

Combat tired from a vintage, where elements tried to slay;

soldiers at attention, in their cemetery they must stay.


No longer interspersed, they are left clinging to a mate;

regimented to the core, next phase to anticipate.

The tangled limbs were pruned back hard, left fortified but stern;

lifeless, twisted remains, gives little cause for concern.


Let them grow old, for in good time, new fruits will bear again;

old age brings with it character, as no wine stays the same…

With the going down of this sun, to rest in winter’s den,

I shall once again raise my glass, to celebrate with them.


  • By combining Poetry & a photograph you get POETPICS or PHOTOPOETRY.

  • A phrase of philosophy integrated into a photograph = PHILOETRY
