As Lovely as a Tree

DaGoddess @ 04:00

Each time I drive past this tree I have to say hello. She’s wonderfully feminine with her delicious curves. I call her My Girl. LD calls her Our Tree. She’s beautiful no matter where the light comes from, but I find her most intriguing in the late afternoon.

Yesterday, after dropping LD off at his dad’s, I finally stopped and took some photographs of this lovely arboreal goddess. LD had begged off, citing a headache from running and playing so hard earlier in the day.

Tree – Da Goddess

Strong arms reach upward
Waving to her creator
Heaven found in shade

Eucalyptus leaves
Falling silently aground
Her smooth skin weeps

My Tree

My lovely tree

Pretty tree

Gorgeous tree

Wavy curves

Goddess tree

Joyce Kilmer – Trees

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

  1. Lovely tree you chose for yourself!

    I love trees; have all my life. You can’t tell me they’re not all knowing, all seeing sentient beings.

  4. I love that tree. It reminds me of one in my neighborhood that is threatening to overtake the street with its roots, and is so majestic and beautiful that if the city touches it, I’m going come after someone.

    Beautiful pics and poems.

    Also — I’m so sorry I missed your birthday. Sounds like it was a good one. :)

  5. Friends, I absolutely love my tree and glad you’ve found something interesting about her, too.

    No worries on the birthday, Deb.

    And I’m with you on the “if someone from the city touches” a leaf or a root on my tree thing. However, I fear gravity has big plans for my girl. She does lean so precariously. Still, I pray she’s okay for a while longer, digging her roots in deep and defying the odds.
