No Ordinary Sun

No Ordinary Sun
- Hone Tuwhare

Tree let your arms fall:
raise them not sharply in supplication
to the bright enhaloed cloud.
Let your arms lack toughness and
resilience for this is no mere axe
to blunt nor fire to smother.

Your sap shall not rise again
to the moon’s pull.
No more incline a deferential head
to the wind’s talk, or stir
to the tickle of coursing rain.

Your former shagginess shall not be
wreathed with the delightful flight
of birds nor shield
nor cool the ardour of unheeding
lovers from the monstrous sun.

Tree let your naked arms fall
nor extend vain entreaties to the radiant ball.
This is no gallant monsoon’s flash,
no dashing trade wind’s blast.
The fading green of your magic
emanations shall not make pure again
these polluted skies . . . for this
is no ordinary sun.

O tree
in the shadowless mountains
the white plains and
the drab sea floor
your end at last is written.

  4. i was just fapping and everything went great until i felt sting in my cock, my hand pushed against the top of the table and my roll on deoderant fell down head first onto my foreskin, i stood up in shock and yanked my headphones out of my pc which caused "oh yeah cum in my tight little teen ass" to sound through the house, i punched the speakers until the sound stopped, then, my father came in the room with my acceptance letter to college, keep in mind hes a conservative christian, he saw me standing there, porn on the screen, and blood coming out of my cock, he then left, what should i do?
