96. O TREE

O’TREE (Under an Australian Sky)

O tree, when I saw thee,

Branches departed and winds reacted.

Solo against the sky, flanked against the earth.

Watching over a forgotten harvest…

You brave it all, a silent call

Protector for centuries, to maintain your duty.

Men have aged and gone, yet you have remained and borne

A beauty of timeless stature, a true wonder of nature.

About thejellyfarm

In real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.
