Disaster Recovery


A tree
torn and shredded
by violent wind
collapses in fragments
is a tree no more

Months pass
no one can help
that cursed tree
bear fruits
until the will
to live
take roots

Then
it starts over
slowly
in the right season
it yearns for
the sun
again

We see
one fragment
of green
pushing through
the dirt

Apology Unaccepted


Today I receive
an apology
from her
for not being able
to put herself together
after many falls

I don’t understand
why does she even apologise
for things
are no fault of her own

She insists
that wasting my time
is an offence
even there seems to
be valid reasons

I can’t help
but think
she is an inspiration
for the fact that
she takes responsibility
respects my time
and still hopes
to put herself
back together
again
and again
and again
