A TREE’S GIFT
Her spirit rejoices in your heart,
you can feel her graciousness with your eyes,
you can taste her beauty with your nose,
you can hear her as her gorgeous long legs lift up to the sun,
her thousands of toes all dressed in nature’s finest greenery.
Her erotic twists, turns, cracks and crevices,
moon and swoon on an autumn’s warm afternoon.
She swims waist deep,
her hair of roots and hands underground,
submerging deeply she accepts juices from the earth’s womb.
As the life force moves through her veins,
expanding, pulsating, exploding,
she shares her oxygenic gifts with reverence,
like an aphrodisiac to all who breathe.
