BONSAI

Bonsai tree you are to me a magical form of life in a tree
In order to be at your perfection
Uniquely fed and nurtured by section
Treated with love from top to bottom
With pretty green leaves
You may start to blossom
What ever you give blessed be your owner
A bonsai for friend wont make you a loner
Oh beautiful bizarre miniature tree
I shall name you and love you
Bring magic to me

Needles Under The Tree

History will wash its hands of 2020

Wuhan bats and disposable masks,

Just another year in human annals

Fodder for future historians' tasks

 

Who'd have thought it a year ago?

A holocaust of innocent old dears

Lockdowns and social distancing

I always felt it would end in Tiers

 

Hand gel and hissing ventilators

Dodgy oxygen levels all the rage,

Vulnerable citizen...

Chocolate Tree

There once stood a chocolate tree, a bearer of desires. 

Its leaves melted when it inhaled passion.

Its fruits of fire

Set ablaze lands, verdant and barren.

Its bark was festooned in ribbons

Of rich gold and smooth caramel. 

Like Midas' touch, gluttony abundant,

The tree was nothing short of magical.

I basked in the shadow of the canopy

Atop the chocolate capped grass bl...

Tree of death

The Tree Of Death - Poem by Marie 

It was a really lovely tree
Roots deep spread underground
Its beauty made the people smile
They came to see it from miles around

Then one day a mad man came
Hung himself on a branch
Now passers by say its cursed
They never give it a second glance

Man took its beauty and destroyed it
His corpse rotted hanging from that tree
Now no one will go near it

Tree

Assay

An uprooted tree lies ebbing in the street.
The one who pledged everyone with a refuge
is herself in exigent need.

People come, see the fallen one.

Not a soul seems to be concerned.
Zero, zilch, nada, none.

They don't remember
those cloistered, sizzling infernos of June
those solitary, shivering nights of witchy new moons

and those

sodden, sultry volleys of pouring monsoons

when they, l...

Treedom

Listen to the illusory silence

of the growing arborial

presence parading itself

in the garden of our world.

A stillness that betrays

the ever renewing and

rejuvenating life-giving form.

Imperceptible impressions,

a virtuosity in itself,

claiming no prize

except its own existence.

Love Seed

 

To win my heart, cross my roads 

To get my love, you knock my doors 

Let's to start, to earn cruise 

To build a nest within love rose 

  

Adore you much, looking forward 

To keep in touch, even one word 

Eager to fly, to reach sward 

Where your face, shines on board 

  

You're the star, you're my sun 

You're in heart, the only one 

Grow love seed, before ge...

Roots we choose

We support one another
Like roots do trees
Holding one another up
Whenever they should bleed
Our bonds become stronger day by day 
As our anxieties slowly fade away 
Even when people should try to collude 
We won't be pitted against one another 
And should I ever be forced to choose
I would pick those who support me like the roots
Of the trees that stand so tall, as you enable me to

Family Tree

I'm afraid to have kids
What if they get my depression
Or addiction
Or fucking alcoholism?
What am I supposed to say to them?

"Sorry kiddo,
Suck it up.
You'll soon find out,
Life just fucking sucks"

It's just not fair
To pass on an ongoing burden
To watch my kid suffer
Knowing that I can't relieve them

They're supposed to be protected
But I can't save them from themself
It just kill...

100 Reasons to Plant a Tree

Add them up and there must be 
one hundred reasons to plant a tree: 

The buds of May inlaid with dew.           1 
The verdure of the summer leaves.       2 
Winter twigs -a filigree                           3 
against the sky’s gunmetal hue. 
Refreshing shade when days are hot,   4  
and autumn colours -red and gold.        5 
Rot down leaves to make leafmould      6 
and mulch it rou...

CHRISTMAS TREE

Booties on the tree

for him or for me...

---

My mind is in a miasma

sight blinded

In a dream like state

trying to peek thru

what did I do

lose them along the way

---

Thoughts and visions begin

to dance in my mind

Pictures of him and me

I try to find

---

Instead nightmares

run thru my head

Lies choke me like a python getting ready to eat it's prey

The Evil Tree

I'm going to tell you a story, which was genuinely one of the most terrifying moments of my life. I'd always been quite cynical about the idea of ghosts and demons and spiritualism, but this moment changed that for me and made me realise that actually, we are NOT alone in this world. Please, I know and understand the cynicism of most on this topic, but I can assure you that I have not invented any...

A Tree In The Elephant's Graveyard

A Tree In The Elephant’s Graveyard

It began with a pen
and paper,
beneath a tree.
Carried here
upon a rat
to rest awhile.

The paper was white
and stared at me
insolently.
The pen hovered,
dripping ink
like tears.

A serpent
coiled itself
around My neck.
I thought of stars
and dreamt
of gouache landscapes.

Still the paper
would not
fuck the pen.
My thoughts
were clear,

Beech Tree (lyric)

Beech tree save breeze for me

 

Hideaway for highwaymen

high above broken ground

stealing souls

of maiden's hearts

 

Soaked in rain was my way

now blue skies do the same

sunny days

- are all the same

 

Walk away the tunnel way

to Highgate Hill and down again

find your mates

have your share

 

Hidaway for you and me

I wish we were born to be

The Spirit of The Tree

The gust of wind is ever so slight

But it lifts the seed on wings of air

And it is borne upon the breeze in flight.

 

The wind blows and gusts.

The rain washes and the seed is carried

to soft fingers of the earth, unhurried.

 

Nestling snugly in the earth

the seed slips deeper down,

Deeper into the earth.

 

Later a Green shoot appears

stretchi...

A Lone Tree Survives

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A lone tree survives

In Man's greed to make money

Is our own downfall

Did You Hear Something?

if a tree falls and nobody is there should it make a recording

so that we all may hear it scream, tweet, so the birds that one day called it home

can carry word  of it’s strident surrender?

 

maybe this tree is happy to fall and rest in quiet reflection

of it’s once verdant splendour, at peace with its latest role

as the newest crossing over the forest stream and

CHRISTMAS TREE

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

Abandoned by the bin bags?

Rejected with the empty cans

Discarded on cold stone flags.

 

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

Alone on a NewYear pavement?

It seems to say "Remember me -

And all the joy I once meant".

 

Is anything sadder than a Christmas tree

In a dust-cart  - lost to sight?

It seems to...

Balloons in the tree

Pass me the toys I'll play with you

lets load the riffle let the bullet go loose!

Who's gonna shoot the balloons in the tree?

Who's gonna pull the knives out of me?

 

Your little sister now owns your touch

cook for the robots 'cause they fought for us

we'll never let the kite go fly free

we never ever will let you leave

 

So you've really got it going

The Tree

 

Once this fine tree graced a forest.

Natures noble green giant.

Birds nested and played amongst the leaves.

Searched for insects in the tough brown bark of the tree

Safe and secure in its green canopy.

Whilst berries and nuts in abundance during summer

Sustained many, through the harsh cold of the dark winter months.

 

Squirrels lived aloft, high above the...
