We Are Trees

Updated: Jun 4

Since i started curating the Synergy Slam Poets: TREES workshop program and finding a lot of poems I have around the natural world have a focus on trees. Not something I expected...


We Are Trees

every time

a tree is cut

we

 are one step closer

to oblivion

cut into oblivion

they cut in oblivion


 

We are trees

our Ancestors Souls       lace the branches

paper lanterns

strung

as pathways      through the boughs

 

guide the climb

to the highest fruit

closest to the sun          protected from

thieves and appropriators

trading on superhighways

 

of tangled roads

to late success and

sobering irrelevance
