Trees… who needs them?

What were they once? And now?felled from Highest Grace

What are your trees? Where are they?

Read these two shorts poems; share yours

 

The Telephone Pole, formerly known as The Tree

Bridled in strung lines,
Carrying messages, intimate or otherwise,
Reduced to vertical; stripped of all alacrity

The Tree, formerly known as The Forest Kings

Forest Kings
Of  Ancient Woodlands,
Redwood, Pine, Cypress, Oak.
      Once stately robed in
      Lichen, Moss, and Vine
Now felled from Highest Grace,
Splintered and assigned,
      Displaced, under edificial flowers
      and highway beds,

Their regal knees
      ground out from under them
