Bifurcated symbiosis

Bifurcated symbiosis
betwixt the human nature,
betwixt the nature of the tree
us, a denouement of neurosis,
braced for the hammer and the sickle.

Whilst presented with life so simple
Oh how can us’t be so strict and fickle!

We live in plain sight of these topiaries;
plain view of an essence unencumbered.
Yet, we abide by  our complex lives,
a litany of laws and rules,
each one, carefully numbered.

Alas, as quiet as they may appear,
they be ever cognizant of our complex affairs,
and ask,
for our salvation,
in the midst of eternal and silent prayers.

Tree Concerts

Hi again, it’s been too long.

We here at beautiful trees were fortunate enough to be among the many who came together for the latest gathering of arboretal enthusiasts in what are now being called: tree concerts. At these events, tree lovers of all sorts come together, take a seat, and enjoy the awe-inspiring experience of a tree in nature. The sounds, the sights, the whole thing. It truly is a wonderful event, and damn near impossible to put into words. But, as usual, us BT lovers try our best.

Stage Fright

on a sunny day,
you show us the way.
overlooking the water-

…tis a casual display
amidst this silly foreplay,
on hard plastic chairs,
shy, hiding, downstairs,
our eyes,
ugly–but filled with glamour.
enamored with such stature.

with n’ever a thing to fear
you enter the eyes, the ear.
we cannot help but be impressed
by such fanciful dress.

a true sunday best!
