The Tree and Me


    Everyday as i pass the old tree

        i compare myself to the limbs

            branches hanging lower now

                leaves dropping and bark scarred

                    the deep roots un-earthed

                        tree house fallen

                            glory days

                                lost in

                                    time...

    Sharon, loved this. I have written three poems about my fondness for trees. Check out sixth sense seduction and From where I stand. Trees tell many stories. But of course it is tree language. Allan

    † Again, Sweet Beautiful Sharon, I Can Easily View Myself Within This Painting. To Take This Child's Truth A Bit Further; If My Own Life Were To Be As This Metaphor Then, A Branch Whom Never Truly Budded ? No Fruit, Just The Scorching Heat Beating Down Upon A Life Dependant; Waiting For Love's Gardener * Fast Forward: Countless Joyous Birds, Lodging Amid Mercy's Thriving Branches ˜ I Can Find Your Priceless Beauty Within This Picture, Too! Good To See You Again, Love, John
