Tree Poems

Poems from my archives, to follow my post Bloganuary prompt for January 30, 2022.

tree farm
young trees grow
alongside the old

grey clouds
and Norway Spruce
tree in the wind
a restful view
Sunday morning

tree branches
bowed to the ground
seemingly half-broken
covered with new leaves
my notebook of prayers

in the area
where we had
to take a tree down
new peony leaves

many Springs
yellow primroses
near an old tree

day grows more clear

day grows more clear
primroses grow past
the flower garden


primroses growing
from garden to lawn
deep decades of roots
strengthen my faith
for new dreams

Karl mows around the primroses until their flowers are past for the year. And the primroses return every year. We did not plant them, and are grateful for how they grow in different places in the yard.

I noticed the hosta beginning again by the birch tree.
