Poetry, prose, and lyrics from Henry Clemmons.
I like how you set this up visually, and also that you told a story.
Yes I think your visual was extremely effective in your construction adding power to the meaning of your words. Well done and thank you so much for writing and linking today. Gay
sad the destruction we reap upon the trees...nice enviro msg in your nonnet...kinda glad you are not upside down today..smiles.
Our neighbour had a beautiful birch tree felled because she scraped it with her car. There was room for a double-articulated to drive past it - but she hit it!I immediately took a 'deprived' birch sapling from the woods and planted it in a safe place in our front garden. It now stands a proud 20ft. high, and growing. One out - one back.
So sadly true...nice write with a good message.
Man's hunger to kill...anything and everything, but trees seem worse somehow because of what it takes to make them, how much they give, and the fact they can't run away. Thanks for the anti-Lords of Creation message, and nifty work with the form.
One instance where the gossip is likely worth listening to!http://www.kimnelsonwrites.com/2011/07/11/isnt-it-ironic/
As a species it seems we are driven to destruct, and we started with the trees! In my neck of the woods it seems a good 50% of the population is employed by the forestry industry (when they can find the trees!) The other 50% headed out west to help us slay the oil dragon! All for the sake of dollars...there has got to be a better way for us to get on in this world. Power to the poets, this piece speaks volumes!
Kinda sad... nicely done. I liked the oak's advantage. Stately things they are.
Man is a hunter. It is in his nature to kill things. He who lives by the sword will die by the sword. Don't worry the trees will survive it is in their nature.
I am investigating the examples of Nonette ... a breadcrumb following another breadcrumb! I like the story - even with the sad ending.
I like the first line... :)
Trees must be alive..long suffering maybe..but I think they will out live us even we keep chopping..Jae
it is always a sad thing to have a tree fall before its time.great poem
Trees do tell tales. We just can't hear what they are saying now, but someday we will. Thanks.
