RGT #5: TREE OF LIFE

Azure

Gossamer skylight draping down

A lush patchwork of turquoise-robed fairies

Perched sprightly on frames of weather-worn hardwood

Reaching heavenward for the guardian of the day

 Shining                    Nurturing                      Shading

Beaming               Nourishing               Assuring

Pillar of life and timeless presence

Forged of sun

Fed by rain and earth

Drinking from deep wells

A Medusa-tangle woven into life-dust

Anchor ropes                  Bedrock


This poem was my attempt at concrete/visual poetry, inspired while leaning against a tree-trunk at a rest stop.
