Bright Wounds

in the afternoon low sun under clouds
glittered on the icy trees
freezing rain
in the night broke them
major branches down tops snapped off
leaving bright wood wounds
trunks bent to the ground
century-old oaks uprooted
the power is out
well pump phones internet down
we are helpless in the dark
cleanup not yet even begun
