Angels Falling Out of the Trees

Out of maple trees comes the samara. Like a little angel, the seed takes wing. On summer days in North America, carried by the wind is this little thing. Ever so gently, it is gyrating. I watch each achene spiral to the ground. In great numbers these wonders can be found.

    Robert, Firstly, congratulations. Critical sense: I love the thrilling for which "tree" is ingrained into it which makes it so joyful and sensational still by the falling angels. It makes this piece a good one. George

    Congrats on your placement with this lovely poem. Thanks for the lesson, too. I had never heard of samara.

    Hello Robert , I had never heard of samara but by your beautiful descriptions i guessed that it resembled our sycamore tree buds. They look exactly the same. Before I saw them this reminded me of when I was a child we all looked hypnotised by the angelic nature that they fell. A triumph on three levels, description, visuals and spiritual. Beautiful microscopic study.... Karen Deeks
