Thanks to Christie at Wondering and Wandering for hosting us today. And for the fabulous topic of TREES.
I have a love for trees. It goes as far back as 1970 when I lead our first Earth Day activates as a high school senior. I did a happy dance when Christie offered the topic of trees as today’s focus.
Trees in summer, trees in autumn, trees in winter, trees in spring. I follow the seasons by what the trees are showing me.
These are a series of poems that I’ve been working with lately.
in the breeze
to climb pathways to the sky
on the branch
reminding us of autumn’s song
bringing down my leaves
snowflakes gathered around my trunk
my leaf pods nestle
and wait for Spring’s announcement
leaves unfold and reach
as a heron dives for salmon
in chorus like bells
in the distance, howls and sirens

And one more just because
