Six Days of Poems about Plants

  1. Canopy of Plants

    Did John say canopy?
    of trees
    where Tarzan swings and macaws squawk with bumblebees?
    Or did he spake
    Canap├ęs
    Tasty morsels
    Like pate and Applebees?
    Or might he mean
    a can of mealy peas
    that mom infested me?
    I guess will never know
    for it remains a mystery.

  2. Oak Owl

    Through the canopy

    Of dusk territory

    Staring up blindly

    Making sure not to

    stumble

    Watching me

  3. Lone pine canopy.
    It's a girl's dream.
    Not really.
    Nobody has the power beyond
    this electrified
    silence
    but to imagine
    slam bam
    thank you
    whisper thank you
    bye



    secret
    evening


    please

  4. Overgrown from underneath
    And choking
    Years of deadwood hang
    It was a job for long sleeves and sharp tools
    To find some light
    To green.

  5. towering deciduous
    trees break the wind
    for the farmer
