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


 are one step closer

to oblivion

cut into oblivion

they cut in oblivion


We are trees

our Ancestors Souls       lace the branches

paper lanterns


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
