Two Cedars

There stands two cedars among the oaks,
wishing the rays would find them.
For if they reach the light above,
the oaks will cease to bind them.

    I loved this. It had a "Lord of the Rings" feel to me. Love that you said so much with such brevity; it's a true testament to your talent. Great job and great poem; kudos :)

    Have been caught by the title.. as Cedar tree is the tree we have on our National flag :)... but the title did not mirror the beauty of the content... You have an amazing way of description..

    Good luck in the contest. For what it's worth, I believe I recall that cedars are considered "terminal" growth, that is, they crowd out other plant life. In oklahoma cedars are considered trash trees, and are destructive due to their phenomenal water consumption and burn potential during fires. I enjoyed the images in your piece. Nice work... Jack

    waiting for new poems, Caleb. I am at school ready to go home so I don't have time to search your oldies. I wonder if there are many there I have never read yet. It would be nice if there were some there!!

Congrats are in order! :) You shine! BTW...past all the silliness...the! "I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree"...sure fits this piece. :)

    The time limit didn't seem to affect you at all... this one's a shortie, but a goodie! I imagine those cedars look stellar in the sunlight... very cool nature piece, Caleb!
