Nuptial Cords – A Poem

Image credit: lovethispic

Humanity and forest – two become one;

Trees with nuptial cords pledge

Their internal tree rings,

Exchanging their bark with us

As tokens of promise.

Since we cannot walk

Its entire circumference,

The forests hike the Earth for us,

Nurturing those formed of the soil,

Under nature’s protective canopy.

  1. This is superb, Suzette. I am thrilled your thoughts perceive the forest and trees. I feel the image is one that can be perceived in many different ways, but few noticed the trees. Happy Easter!
