Lone Tree

So you are back to square one
assuming squares exist
But what if they are unrealities,
 
where do you start this journey
energized by an outlet, or is it inlet?
You see not all warm things are comforting.
 
See this, It could blind your sight
with lightning fast killer bolts! Wait -
I am done looking up.
 
My ears weary with repetitions, duplications
And please stop counting the dead
Though there appears to be a tree standing
 
in the midst of a labyrinth,
after all the walls were broken down
inside my head.

(My first poem for the year! Trying to emulate a John Ashberry poem. I did not realize that the date of his death month-day was my birth month-day.)

Joel, I am not all that familiar with Ashberry, but I have no doubt this well-crafted poem emulates his style very well. Happy New Year!
