Rainbow Tree

Oh my regal Eucalyptus friend,
Your tall rainbow trunk is rooted deep,
Stationary, yet your tree tops bend
In constant unison with the wind.
My camera can’t capture your awesome sweep.
Thin limbs try to reach the azure sky
While your trunk fascinates passersby.
An army of ants reveals a platoon
Moving over bark to their marching tune. 
Your small leaves sing in susurrate song,
A Queen amidst trees where you belong!

We have this lovely tree here in Hawaii. The rainbow eucalyptus, Mindanao gum, or rainbow gum is the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. Its natural distribution spans New Britain, New Guinea, Seram, Sulawesi and Mindanao.

    I'm not sure which enamored me more, The poem, the tree, or your facts about it. One thing is certain... That tree has been given due honor by your talented gift. Hugs, Sarai

    From a bent tree in the wind to the regal Eucalyptus friend . . . how they stand witness giving testimony to God's incredible creation. Loved the poem and the connection with you.

    Beautiful tree and beautiful poem, Connie. I hope the lava flow we are hearing about doesn't destroy those trees nor that it will affect you and your family - bob h
