Hi guys, I bring cheer and tranquility with me in this piece.
I walked out to a nearby open space in the neighborhood and got inspired to write this tree post.
While here, I thought of the trees I’d love to have in my fantasy garden. So I came up with these. I also included some haiku so I hope you enjoy.
In the garden in my mind I see a luscious wisteria tree,
Oh how it inflames me!
dripping with purple desire
Romance lives within
In that garden, I must have a Noble oak.
For it protects all the rest, flexing with security
You ooze power and courage
“You are safe,” you say
Oh green palm! So vain, how could I not have you
The way you know you’re one of a kind, effortless in your beauty
Suave and calm palm tree
Exuding peace and relief
A bit of beach brought home
To see you but once a year would be worth it all
How could I live with myself knowing I had a choice and chose to leave you behind
Cherry tree blossoms
Auspicious each time you bloom
Bringing good fortune
Only one will do
Birch in the corner
You’ve shed the skin of trials
Thus new beginnings
If I could then I would
Have that mighty redwood
Endless and everlasting
A family tree
Dreams become possible when I see you
As ethereal beauty pulses around your presence
Take me where I’ve never been
Where dreams do come true
You’ve seen me through many a year
Bringing hope for each coming one
Prickly cedar tree
Fragrant with hope and blessing
Healing and Cleansing
Don’t you just love trees, their beauty, their peace.
The air they give and the one they clean
Let me know which special tree you’d like to have in your garden or compound. I’d really like to know.
