Prototype Of Man - Poem by Sheldon Allen Saluta

Trees are a good example of man
Man of valor and of verge, result of a true man
The bold predicament of man is what trees having
And the way of life in trees is what we do living

With the leaves that are good absorber
Of lights and of air for the prime, really a sober
In life, we are the seeker and catcher of fortune
To fulfill needs and to survive, making our own tune

With the stem that is vessel of foods
And water to immobilize the process for good
In life, we have a high-oriented vessel of hopes
Where dark was really bothering and was being cope

With the roots that are extremely strong
Prevents the body to fall thru the storm, all along
In life, we have a unfathomed determination
In spite of strife and trials, we still stand with vision

With the fruits that are much inviting
It’s the product of the process, really deserving
In life, we have fruits in our patience and sacrifice
Persevere to succeed and to climb high, where dreams lie

Trees could be similar to a man
Like trees need nature desperately just like human
Many to mention and to discuss no need to press
There’s no completive discord between man and trees

    'Where dreams lie'...just advice as dreams are multiple...we have many dreams right not just one ie 'dream'...I'd look to rewrite that so everything falls in place grammatically and in theory...just my 5 cents sweetheart ;) 9+ (Report) Reply

    I can't agree more! Really a charming one! ~
    I like trees, and I think trees have some unbelievable spirits and characteristics.
    They are genius on our earth.
    Live as we do.

    I love the compariosn made here between trees and man - - a complex of hopes, and valour mixed with stem and root etc.- - excellent conception.... very well presented Trees are a wonder in themselves but alongside a human they together are a powerhouse of energy for life. (Report) Reply

    Trees gives us air to breath and so do we give back them the same. Without trees we don't exist and so do they. Nice thought, well penned. (Report) Reply
