Widow Maker Spring Time Party … You Do Not Want to Be Invited

This Widow Maker tried to make a widow out of me

Bear … 03.12.2014 This Widow Maker tried to make a widow out of me.
My husband says it missed him by less than a meter.
No sound, no warning. He felt the rush of air and the
first branches hit the ground as he had just turned
away to go inside.

Widow Makers are actually trees and tree branches that shed or fall.  They can be deadly if they land on unwary persons or animals below.  Once fallen, the dead-fall becomes home for wildlife once more., But it also creates obstacles and new hazards on the ground or submerged in water or mud.  During Mother Natures spring cleaning, she sweeps the old dead wood from the forest to the floor.

WIND FALL

.
The Widow Maker is a killer
Hidden in the glory forest of new growth
.
The Widow Maker is waiting
Shedding death with winter’s clothes
.
The Widow Maker is biding time
Sustaining Dryocopus Pileatus
.
The Widow Maker is suspended
Between living and dead
.
The Widow Maker is paused
Waiting for the dagger moment
.
The Widow Maker anticipates
The deadfall reunion
.
The Widow Maker lingers
Giving life to the Spring
.
The Widow Maker is listening
For the wind fall song of death
.
The Widow Maker remains poised
Leaning towards the tipping threshold
.
The Widow Maker is attuned
Yv-wi tsv-di singing between the shadows
.
The Widow Maker is attending
The deadly dance of flowering rebirth
.
The Widow Maker is a killer
Hidden in the glory forest of new growth
.
