This tree received a direct hit from a lightning bolt during a fierce summer storm a few years ago. Flames blazed upon it in the darkness like a besotted demons breath. Boiling its sap along its slender arms and deep into the earth.  It still stands as a sullen monument to natures fury. Charred dust, slowly crumbling as if by some unfatheramble will it still refuses to admit defeat.
