******* What A Feeling. - Poem by Shelley L Baxter

Here I am again,
staring into the willows,
wishing I were like a tree.
A light breeze would blow
swiftly through my limbs.
Nature scents of rain and
a soiled ground below...but
I could not run to clean,
as the winds now whips
through me tossing
my branches effortlessly
to and fro...
Scattered leaves would
lie beneath my torso,
yet I would Stand Strong.
My roots would nurture,
grounding me securely,
into one peaceful place.
I'd have freedom to just be.
Then, I'd be a part of nature.
So there would be nowhere
I'd need to go...and...
no where I'd need to be.
I need not go anywhere.
I need not do anything.

    the breath of nature when tunes by the tree
    beauty yet blooms beneath its branches
    rain when washes its thirst of summer
    green when raves up by the leaves
    there comes the jingles of sweet smells
    as when dusts being mioistened by the shower, , , , , , , , , , , , , yet luscious across the breeze when blowing, well penned,10+, thanks for sharing

    Shelley, this piece is written whimsically, and yet speaks volumes of truth. I don't think I'd like to be a tree though, because lightning can damage me, and burn off my limbs. But this is a colorful piece, and I wish to thank you for sharing this heartfelt write. Barbara (Report) Reply
