  1. A Japanese Tree
    in sandy ground.
    nutrients insufficient,
    when will the next rain come or sunshine from up above.
    other trees younger come out far ahead.
    darkness is everywhere.

    • A beautiful, but heart-rending poem! I feel your hurt and hope that there will soon be light and nutrients sufficient for you to grow as you should.

  2. Congratulations on your literary achievements, Linda!
