Stump Dreams

Stump Dreams

Stump dreams

green decay

brown spring

moss leaf

falling tall

above soil

stone bark

growing cracks

between sky

earth water

roots fly

upward down

endless final

growth death

tomorrow seeds

yesterday leaves

behind scent

flower bud

moment wakes

path petal

stamen stalk

shadows grow

small trees

  1. I dig that line, “falling tall.” Creates a lot of imagery in my mind. Specifically the idea of the Earth as a sphere and a giant tree pointing downward in space. Only from the reference point of the surface does it appear upward. But the surrealist in me likes the idea of inverting the tree. Maybe like the tree of life, “as above, so below.”
