TREE OF LIFE

Very beautiful and inspiring. I think this poem expresses the cycle of life very well through the different seasons. Also, I like how you deal with the idea of survival in hard times (the harsh winter and the summer drought). I can also read hope and spirituality which this line seems to express: “my branches point to the sky”. I guess I must have probably been inspired by some of your ideas for my last poem, “Withered Tree”, as well as by some others from a poem by Mario Savioni. Somehow there seems to be a connection with the three poems. This is Mario’s poem: https://savioni.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/the-slow-sauce-of-wood/
