Tree Poem

A Poem by Sanober
"

a poem about my overwhelming love for nature and birds :)

"


This is my tree poem
where I imagine 
I am a tree
Oh, wouldn’t that be something?

a tall shady Oak I might be
or a Cherry blossom
giving a glimpse of beauty
to someone who might need it

a Cashew tree would be nice
or perhaps a fruiting Dogwood?

I’d have hundreds of daily visitors
birds, bees, butterflies, squirrels
some birds, smaller than bees

Oh how I’d enjoy 
having a rose-cheeked Parakeet
brush against my leaves!
Wouldn’t a Blue Jay
resting on one of my branches 
make a pretty picture?

I’d never, ever
let them leave hungry

If you were close by, you’d hear
a Cuckoo calling
in the pre-dawn silence
and be filled with an ache 
that cannot be described

you’d stare in complete awe
at the sight of me shining
like warm gold through the mist

I'd be a host to picnics
to poets, writers, travelers, lovers
I'd listen to deep conversations 
and rainy days

Seasons would come and go
winds would blow, leaves would fall
days would pass away like migratory birds

but I’d be right here
still a home 
to wings
to ceaseless rain
to beauty so deep, you could never
bear it all alone
to longings 

still a nurturer

a faithful friend
I'd be the one who never leaves.

What a concept....to be a tree and to stand tall through wind, rain, snow, sun. To provide shade, beauty, and sustenance to other living beings....just beautiful. The personification is beautiful. I would like to host picnics where poetry is read and lovers kiss. Ahhhh....dreamy. You have not posted in so long and this is a wonderful way to come back, Sanober. Lydi**

dearest Sanober.... I can also imagine softly falling
snow nourishing my roots and a snug birdhouse to provide
shelter on my limb where even two birds could find
solace in one another's company. To be strong against
the winds of time. And in the Spring... to feel buds
bursting forth with new life, inspiring poets to pen
poems that nourish the mind. Lovely poetry. truly, Pat
