Tree of Life

Symbol of life: The tree of life.

Many artists walked around it

Admired it

Drew and painted it

Whatever fruit it bore

Bitter quince

Or pomegranate sweet.

Like women who came forward

In the life of an artist:

Sweet or sour pussies.

Have you experienced

Sweet rose-red petals or

Powder blue coves?

A peek into the lost garden

Of Eden?

Or into the red-tide beaten

Oyster banks?


In between rose-red petal’s

Sweet scented folds

The poet danced around the

Specific tree of life

His Muse crowned with

Olive leaves

Silvery and dusty green

A vessel for rich ripe fruit

Peaches and green apples

Chanting songs of poets

To the tree of life.
