In the solitary cell i dwell
basked in the morning glory
gazing through the casement bright
feasting on the pulchritude
eyes behold the rugged trunk
flowers blooming like a shrug
with each branch a story to spare
abode to birds and beast alike
huge as a giant with shadow spread
finding solace in its calming shade
my muse that creates an urge to jot
to hearts content the minds plot.
