A rather earlier poem about trees....

A Winter Coat

All the tall trees wept
Their leaves upon the ground
Seeming quite unwilling and upset
While undressing themselves to the sound
Of those fast approaching chills
But at last they are stripped
See them shiver and shake
That's the only sign of distress
That we'll ever see them make
Yes they creak and they groan
To harmonise with the moan
Of the wind as it squeezes past
But now it's winter again
And snows upon them at last
So they're dressed in white not in shame

October 1974

The ancient Chinese proverb and symbolism of the plum tree is that even as winter tries to hold it's grip, during the coldest and harshest times of life's experience, the plum tree bursts forth with the earliest blossoms of spring. The moral is that even in the most dire existence and brutal conditions hope springs eternal and even the most difficult circumstances can and will be overcome. The beauty, strength, love and wisdom of life will triumph over pain, grief, poverty, abuse, neglect and a myriad of other traumatizing events in our individual lives


a little sunshine for these lovely winter dayz... :)
