The Heartbeat of a Tree


Where's the heartbeat of a tree?
Where's the comfort in its branches?
Where's the warmth within its presence?
In songs and poems of life's romances.

Can a tree find counsel in a friend
and shed a tear due miles apart?
Or avoid the counsel of a friend
and, without a reason, thence depart?

Can a tree see clearly into eyes of love
conveying words that are unspoken?
Or have its life turned upside-down
and find two hearts completely broken?

A tree can face a sudden storm
violently raging beyond its might.
And though its roots are firmly planted
its eventual fall is due its height.

So, where's the heartbeat of a fallen tree?
Where's the comfort in its branches?
Where's the warmth within its presence?
Broken - firewood split due to circumstances

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
