Tree Of Life

Poem By Diana Poems

Tree of Life

You stand there
Still as a rock
You hold your fruit you bear
The amount of wrinkles spreads around you
Many years entwine your body
As your dark circles under your eyes
Get bigger with age
Your neck swoops lower as you sleep
Your green hair flows in the summer
But sheds in the winter
You smile as a child climbs onto your arms
The only movement you feel
If only your neck wouldn't be so stiff
You would turn towards the sun
And engulf its energy through your skin
If only legs would move you
You would walk where there is no noise
You would run to where there is no human life
For humans are the only ones who end your life early
And sit on your remains
They sleep on your arms
Rip your neck into trim
Drill your eyes into holes
Puncture your skin with letters and words
Burn your flesh with fire
If only you had legs
You would escape
You would find paradise
You would bring forth years of fresh air
In a life of mass pollution
Mass destruction
Mass consumerism
Mass populations
Funny how you save us
And in return we end you
All in the name of greed

Playboy

She poses with her legs spread
The muscles in her thighs show
She looks at you with her blue eyes
Her blonde hair flowing in curls

The Folk Dance

I came to visit you
Your eyes lit up the second you saw me
You ran towards me in a pink fluffy dress
Your arms squeezed around my hips

The Engine That Keeps Us Running

At the end of the sidewalk
There is a turn
Near the end of the road
There is an exit

A Mother's Day Gift

I watered you everyday
But for four days
I went away

The Funeral's Rain

The day comes
The preparations have been done
They come walking in
Black clothes

Water

You sway
Like my emotions
You glitter
Into my eyes
