Treasure Island

(virginia, usa)

thanks to a tree


tree's light is off now
few boxes still under
tomorrow would be
clean up tree be gone
leaving just ornaments
for coming season

i wonder how many
trees give its life
for human festivities
why should you take
a beautiful tree indoor
to make you happy

    i agree with you completely. The tree is more beautiful in its natural environment alive rather than inside the living room. What you have inside the room with all the glittering lights is the body of the murdered tree. (Report) Reply

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
