Tree of life

Tree of life
planted in my core
spreading growing
many branched

tree of songs
flame tree
rooted in life
breath blown

bone fibred body
elemental
tree in a seed
full throated

thousand tongued
thick skinned
creaking tree
enduring thunder

wind eroded
snow bound
under storm clouds
budding slow

through despair
thrusting hopes
of high skies
cirrus strewn

milky ways
and birds returning
wakening sleep laden
circled in memories

close grained
springwood
and summerwood.

  1. Its an anthology of a sorts. But also reflecting back to when trees were severely chopped in my garden. It was a few years ago, I felt the severance was unbearable at the time. But all five trees have recovered and so I dedicate these poems to these life affirming trees.
