Treescape

What Lies Beneath – Vandy Massey



Let all the dry and brittle
fall away,

you’ll green again.

I’ll climb you in summer,
hidden,

speaking poetry
to my own ears,

remembering the taste
of my own name,

letting all the dry and brittle
fall away,

to green again.

  2. :) - we chose the same image. I love the title - wish I'd thought of it! And the repetition 'green again' yet used in different ways is brilliant, Jennifer ~

  7. This is lovely, Jennifer. I especially like

    "hidden,

    speaking poetry
    to my own ears,"

    I do it myself, and it is renewing - sans the climbing, of course. Though one's imagination can go there. Smiles.

  10. This poem accomplishes so much as a whole! I love the way it circles back on itself, like the seasons, like life.

    I'm sorry it has taken me all week to get back to late entries on the challenge.

  15. This is a gem of a poem. Simply gorgeous! I read it four times. I also loved the painting you chose, but I was on vacation in FL enjoying the beach - working on my "green". :)
