Climbing Trees, Branches Sway

crediting unknown artist





















lofty  summer dreams I reach  for  thee
my limbs yielding to  your wandering  touch  

roots entwined , together we climb one tree 
golden leaves gently  fall, baring too much

planting  sweet  kisses, I  give  you my  heart 
tilting  skyward, our  crowns burst in sunlight
our  trunks molding forming  natural  art 
dancing  together  swaying in moonlight

beneath a canopy  full  of  desire 
whispering secrets  that only we hear 
peaking in the  shadows we  reach higher 
a song unsung, whistles within our  ear

wrapping my  branches around  you I sigh
watering our thirsty roots, heaven cries

  2. And like a tree such feelings just grow and grow, how high they go only two know. But after such a poem as one, I think they need a bottle of water haha

  11. I saw this image earlier today when I was searching for something else and thought it was lovely and could inspire something poetic...but this is more beautiful than I imagined..."our trunks molding forming natural art" is striking!

  14. I really love this because, much like a tree, love grows and the roots deepen. As a tree becomes more and more a part of the earth as its roots grow, we become more and more a part of the other person as our love grows.

    1. I agree hopefully, if there are strong roots love will continue to grow upwards.

  15. This is beautiful. Love the sensuality and sexuality in it, and beneath it, the love - the roots. Wonderful write. I enjoyed reading it so much.

  17. the specificity of 30 roots...and one tree...those are things that jump out at me...and give a cool undertone of meaning beyond what the words say, to me.

    1. Hi Brian,

      I think it should have said thirsty roots but, now I wonder about the symbolism of "30" I know it has some strong roots.
