The Trees

They  sway amongst the clouds and azure skies
majestic giants
enfolding my spirit in the webs they hold

I feel the utter strength they posess
as energies are drawn up up up through the core
into tender branches that touch the skies

my child climbs onto the back of one of the giants
held in an embrace
that is both awesome and serene
while she
overlooks the paths the little
ants take
far below.

    You have captured the beauty of the trees in this poem. Once, in a hurricane, I saw their majesty again as they withstood the strong winds. Trees bring beauty day after day. Tree climbing was great, too. This poem is nostalgic to me...and wonderful. Thanks for writing it. Dane

    Congrats on winning in my nature contest - this poem is brilliant. The picture it paints is so vivid and clear, like looking up from the roots and then down with a birds-eye view through your childs eyes - what could be better than that! AWESOME! So well done! Love Kristin
