Tree of Life

Drawn to trees
ink chasing lines
yearning for definition

How to capture
such profound calm

Even as the regal Walnut
towers over this place
she dwells within me

I know
I feel her
she seeks expression

My Tree of Life.

(In Response to Eugi’s Weekly prompt: Tree of Life. I have been obsessed with drawing trees. The featured image is the beginning of a series that keeps drawing me in. Others in the series below.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. GORGEOUS imagery! You say “drawing” – what media is this? Colors are so vibrant.
    I’m drawn in by the geometry, and especially that door in the bottom image – oooo, to go up to that door and knock gently …
    (Great lyrics as well, btw.)

  2. I love your trees and your poem!
    Love the abstract design and the colors.
    Now, what I really find interesting is that I have been “thinking” of drawing and coloring trees! I have not done this other than in my head, but I think about this a lot.

  3. V.J. wow! The colours and patterns you have used are wonderful. The poem itself really connected me to the moment and the line “she dwells within me” hit so hard. That connection with nature is so strong.
