Biggest Cashew Tree In The World

Rating: 5.0

'Welcome to the Biggest
Cashew Tree in the World'
said the sign which greeted
each little boy and girl
and all of us old folks
who came to see this sight.
I was so excited
I couldn't sleep last night.
Planted in eighteen eighty-eight,
this old thing is really great.
Larger than a football field
and its branches often yield
eighty thousand nuts per annum
but I doubt they ever can 'em.
Tourists are let to pick at will
and their pockets they can fill.
This tree grows outward more than high
but no one really knows just why.
Some genetic anomaly
explains what happened to this tree.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This tree is located near Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil
and I wrote this poem on the day I went to see it:
10 October 2014

It has boardwalk trails going through it and we saw monkeys up in the branches in some places.On one end it has a big raised platform so you can get up above it and see how big it really is.Really amazing.

This is another one of the poems that I 'temporarily' deactivated and could not reactivate, so had to resubmit.
