A poem inspired by a picture of a tree which stands in the garden of a friends house

For so many years here I’ve stood

My roots, trunk & branches made of wood

Watching the seasons pass me by

Whilst my leaves in autumn take to the sky

As they fall off & flutter down to the ground

I’m aware of the turmoil all around

My spirit feels only anger & fear

The one that cares for me & holds me dear

Although I’m a tree she feels love for me

Her hurt & pain I can not see

It comes as a feeling & thought to my being

I’m more than a tree that most are seeing

That I can’t help her fills me with despair

The way she is treated just isn’t fair

She’s a kind gentle soul forever done wrong

I loved to hear her poetry & song

But she went away I knew not why

So I sent out my love across the sky

Hoping one day she would return

To feel her love is what I did yearn

Now she is here back in her home

I only wish is she’ll never again roam

Leaving me here in the silence & cold

Not seeing when my leaves turn to gold

Or bright green in the time of the spring

As they flourish & grow as I hear her sing

Playing along to the piano she loves

As her song passes up to all those above

Her talent is true & needs lots of care

So she can progress & with others then share

I will watch over her in case she may need

Then guide the others their love they then feed

She doesn’t want fame just for others to know

How blame, hurt & pain can stop you to grow

Keep up writing, the hurt will go away some day. But for now, release it into the air.

Wonderful personification. I'm immediately reminded of my poem, From Little Acorns Grow.

Reviewed by Ruan Mills Burke
Trees are a wonderful inspiration. So graceful and majestic. so utterly reliable, like guardians of the Earth.
