Artist's description:

The Grane Bonsai Tree

Contorted windswept solitary sits the Grane Bonsai tree
Curiously twisted, contemplated throughout Granes history
Was nature the artist who shaped the driftwood that we see
Environment along with grit stone rejected symmetry

Time shaped and nurtured cruelly during its struggle for life
Its natural beauty distorted throughout centuries of strife
Who knows what sights it witnessed within the confines of Rushy Hill
Pedlars beggars, workers left silent at Clough Head mill

It’s painfully misshapen branches provide haven for creatures of the moor
Bitter winds and acid rains refuge for all below
Has its deformed beauty been styled to reflect our human ideals
Will the artist’s secret teaching ever be revealed?

The Grane Bonsai Tree (2017)
