Tree Breaths

"

Did you hear the tale of the tree stump that felt defeated?

A soul depleted and so it trickled, slowly dwindled,

Sun dried leaves that escaped and blew through open windows.

Once towered and tarried through turbulence amidst drought and rain.

Weathered. Cut - Reduced to a level of mankind.

Seemingly paradoxical as the tree breathes life into and under the sky.

Nourishment as tin cans of beans, once thriving for nature’s families.

You see, the stump’s roots would remain vigilant, adverse to doubt and machines.

And occurred the day, a dove and hummingbird flew down and came,

Assured the stump was clinched in Heaven’s arms.

Against surrounding destruction,

Of something of magnitude of crowns and the Aurora Borealis,

It sprouted,

From close to nothing, a beacon of light.

WOW! WOW! And WOW! This is amazing & unexpected & powerful! I love the way you flirt around the perimeter of how trees are central to our need for oxygen, adding a background theme to this ongoing metaphor/comparison for how humans and trees can both be battered by life in similar ways. The finishing notes of survival are written so lyrically, as to feel like a celebration of all earth's beings that work together to stave off our foolish destructive tendencies! This is very unique & mind-blowing as an open-ended message to provoke the reader's own take on things (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Too kind Duane!
I've noticed that you do a wonderful job of putting words to a picture, and being able to capture the same emotions or tone reflected in the picture. "Tree Breaths" is no exception.

So sorry, so late! Nature is everything! Thanks Hebe.
How sad a thought and yet, ' .. You see, the stump’s roots would remain vigilant, adverse to doubt and machines. ~ And occurred the day, a dove and hummingbird flew down and came, ~
Assured the stump was clinched in Heaven’s arms.'

As per trees, re-birth is always possible, given due possibilities. if the root travels where nourishment is, if the roots are feel-flowing, there is always hope. And the same applies to the human condition too, and that is what nudged me as i read through your beautifully laid words..

thankyou so much for sending this to me.
I see this as a beautiful piece of work
I had to read it 5 times to get the ghist or meaning of it, that's age related lol
anyway I see that the stump will sprout in all its glory and grow again
I hope that I got that right? I hope so, I love trees hate the thought that they become paper or furniture, btw we should all walk through trees or a garden once a day, apparently its beneficial I know I try to

Hello, Ty!

Fortunately, my review will be short because I don't have many things to say. I felt overjoyed to read your poem for the reason that I didn't have the occasion to read a real spirited poem these weeks. Repeating other people's words, I like the way you contoured this beautiful picture of nature. The way you mixed the figures of speech and the artistic images is marvelous.
I have only one mistake to "evaporate". It is about "sun dried". Consider adding a hyphen, as it will result "sun-dried".
Excepting that minuscule mistake, your work is fabulous!

That's all I had to comment!
Keep writing! Good luck!
