Slick Sycamore

Written for:  One Woman's Quest II
VJ's Weekly Challenge

"Spend some time communing with trees."

Smooth bark,
elephant feet
planted firmly
on ancient roots
forming trails 
underground.  Little
pockets provide laps
to sit in.  Bumps
and knots protrude
in irregular patterns
adorning the torso.
The tree stands
outside my living
room window, a giant
sycamore I have named

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
