Wise Trees

Inspired by two massive, aged, wise trees I noticed on a beautiful evening.

Wise Trees

On the nightside, parked
tucked in the shadow
I took courage at seeing
your gorgeous crown,
dense dimensions,
fullness of wisdom
of your elegant roots.  
Your presence 
so charming
draws me closer 
within the limits 
of your 
massive frondescence 
please fold me closer
wrap me tightly
with your wise 
winged boughs
I beg you, branch deeply 
into the chambers 
of my heart and 
fill me with your

Wholly Encompassed

Seeds sown
in tilled hearts
taking root;
gaining ground
seeking room
gathering fruit
of mind, emotion
trailing arm, limb
each extremity
head to toe
holding fast tendrils grip
til blessed immobility
wholly encompassed
slithering, sliding
in full poetic bloom

The King's Roots

The King's choice seed has been planted
His royal germ is well known
Full growth its full inclination
Into majestic garden, stately home

The life within, stirred demanding
Constant perfection, glory replete
as gem-laden rhizomes drink ripe earth
sinking plumb deep, wayward creep

Its uncomeliness has now been broken
From cracked shell it obtains escape
Pivoting to and fro developing
With wiggle room taking shape
