Tree Peace

“Tree Peace” is a riff off of yesterday’s poem “Beach Peace.” What things, places, sounds, activities bring you peace? If you’re wondering why my pants are tucked into my socks, it is to prevent the wood ticks (who live in the tall grass) from crawling up my pant leg. I had 4 wood ticks and a deer tick on me from today but, no matter, as the trees are peaceful.

Tree Peace

Nibbles of chocolate
melding into my taste buds
that moment from solid to liquid
the mental burst of chocolate,
a life-form of its own.

Reading without guilt
spiritual and fantastical tales
home as experienced on another plane,
a ghost perspective.

Letting my inside spill onto paper
taking out my thoughts and feelings
bits of molded glass
the smokey light of this cloudy day
pushing through them
turning, looking at each angle.

Then, the rain comes
tapping the new leaves
like a million tinkling keys,
rain the song of nature,
rain nature’s chocolate
melding slowly into earth’s tongue.
