One Tree

the tree stands guard out on the lonely plain
a beacon for all to see
and the world is at peace

it's leaves are festooned with the look of spring
a ring of flowers beneath
a sign of peace to come

yet no one looks upon this tree of peace
too caught up in their own way
and never to know peace

This poem has beautiful imagery, Mike. I think Rick asked for just one kimo, so I'll have to check that. Winning wishes for you! Love, Carolyn

Once I wote one verse, I couldn't help myself as the other words were in my head and I had to put them down or they would stay there and repeat and repeat and repeat. Mike
