Garden Goddess

Cypress Tree May 5, 2016 #myphoto
trees, a summer haven
green beneath branches
birds and squirrels nest on limbs covered with leaves
walking on hot pavement
you are there waiting
*
branches covered in leaves
help keep my house cool
The shelter and shade provided is welcomed
adoration is due
garden space is yours
*
knarled and misshapen
ancientness worn well
trees hold a place of honor in the garden
revered and respected
great garden goddess

48 syllable poem – 4/7/5 stanza trio

summer haven
birds and squirrels nest on limbs
you are there waiting
*
covered in leaves
providing shelter and shade
garden space is yours
*
ancient, well worn
trees hold a place of honor
great garden goddess

24 syllable poem – 6/6/6/6 only one stanza

ancient summer haven
covered in leaves of green
giving shady shelter
homes for birds and squirrels
the garden space is yours–
honored garden goddess

12 syllable haiku (short-long-short)

ancient cypress 
emanating solace–
goddess
