Can Trees Fall In Love? Poem by Jim Yerman

Can Trees Fall In Love?

Rating: 5.0

I saw these two trees on the beach…the two closest to the shore…
that was nothing new, however, I had seen these trees before.

But this morning they seemed different…
as I watched the sun above the horizon peek…
it seemed to me they were also watching the sun…
and they were standing cheek to cheek.

If I didn't know any better…
Wait! I don't know any better!
So here's what I was thinking of….
Those two trees up ahead of me…
I wondered…could they be in love?

We know that trees communicate…
that they can be damaged and can heal…
but have you ever wondered if a tree can think…
if it has the ability to feel?

From within their branches and their leaves
is it possible for love to grow?
Until we learn to speak their language…we'll probably never know.

Can two trees fall in love?
I don't know if that was ever in the Creator's plan…
but as Deborah and I shared that sunrise with them….
I like to think they can.

Beautiful poem. Can trees fall in love? . I believe, they can. They live and breathe like us. They can fall in love too.
