Sweet Half and Half

Behind my house, sweet Pretty beckons me with leafy swaying arms, and I succumb. I go to where she stands and hear a hum. Examining the heart of her, I see a swarm of bees that hover happily. For what she has, they eagerly have come, and blossoms burgeoning now give them some. So common, yet peculiar is my tree. . . She ought to be a willow, so then why does an adornment of pink blossoms show on only graceful branches hanging low? However, her top limbs are poised high. That other half is reaching for the sky and wearing charms of white like flowered snow! July 11, 2012 For Craig Cornish's Sweet Contest

    I love this tree sonnet, my friend - she sounds like a beauty : ) My favourite tree is quite hollow and would look dead if it didn't have leaves - it's rumoured to be a hanging tree

    Wonderful sonnet you have penned. I need to try and find time to try some new forms. Get stuck doing the same ones. Wrote a poem and lost it but luckily I wrote down most of it so will post it again this weekend. love phyl
