Kind of a combination of Humor and Nature, but had to go with humor for the category...I hope you enjoy it!



I have always thought that when I die I would like to come back as a dog…what an idyllic life,


But after seeing how some are mistreated, well…


Now I am thinking of coming back as a tree, especially the kind that changes color in the fall,


So pleasing to the eye of humans & still near to the heart of dogs, or closer to their hind legs…


To be a member of the family of trees living 100’s of years,

making shade for families, a place for a swing or growing fruit, all this and more are great reasons to come back as



And on the upside, I won’t have any fleas!

Beautiful picture! I did a painting of a man meshed into a tree. But, the man is me. Or is it you? :/

Hah, hah, hah!

But of course, we humans mistreat trees, no excuse me, ABUSE them just as badly!

Look at what we've done to their mother, Gaia!

What a mess (are we, not Earth!)

Sad, ain't it?

P.S. I agree with Taylor Trenton. That last verse invests an otherwise tragic poem with a feathery touch of wry humour!
