The Blossom Tree

Spread the love

Beauteous of boughs glimmers neath moon,
with every bud, o’ every leaf seemingly holy.
Let not, its innocence souse in tide or smog,
rather revere with congruous verse —

Allow each sense to immerse, o’ blossom
tree offers release. Let wisdom ignite our
flesh and core, for it’s surely with nature
that one can soothe and heal —

  1. Nicely written, Sanaa. It’s a pretty poem. To me it adds up to remind me of our use of flowers and plants to show our feelings. Mourning at funerals, a cheer-up when one is ill or hospitalized, I love you at Valentine’s Day, Bonne Apetite at the dinner table, etc.

  2. The visible world is smogging over, slogged in polluted tides: how to keep a center for beauty in such a world? — “congruous verse” maybe all there remains of the natural divine, imagined wisps still flowering. Amen.

  3. You put a positive spin on a list of quite negative words. It is good to focus in the beauty rather than the bad that surrounds it.

  4. I love the sentiment behind this. I am patiently awaiting warmer days so I can indulge in some of nature’s healing. Really neat use of the words.
