No straight lines

Sometimes structure is a good thing (for example, metered poetry). Other times, it can be refreshing to just get out of the structure and appreciate things as they are - free.

There is beauty in absence of rhythm;
In trees that do not grow straight.
In splatters and blotches, in
Tangled up branches,
This lone, uninhibited state.

There is wonder in lines that are crooked;
Man's hand did not plant them that way.
Even so in a seed, not just that
It grows, but that wind
Brought it right where it lay.
