Tree of you

Dance me forests
flowered glades
dappled sunlight
barefoot you.

Dance me leaves
arched above
waving arms
canopy of you

Dance me oxygen
breath of mine from
verdant you.

Dance me wild
bend in breeze
lullabyed by
tree of you

Today Gilena inspires us to celebrate Earth Day writing poetry that makes her dance at toads. Today my muse made write things very brief. This is my 27 month for 30 poems in March, I believe I will make it. I also link up this one to Poetry Pantry

  1. I’m so impressed with your output this month, Bjorn. This is a fitting tribute for Earth Day.

  2. Lyrical and lovely. You’ve captured a delicacy here, that is, I think, an appropriate tone on which to pause and contemplate … the global consciousness that, I believe, Earth Day is attempting to foster.

  3. What a sublime dance – as if each depends on the other for breath and life – the third verse was the flower on the bloom for me

  4. there is such a joyous feel to this poem!
    and van Gogh’s painting of such vibrant colours is the perfect illustration for this poem. 🙂
