skin barren exposing my dense white trunk as I sigh
color falls from me as the cold earth is biting
absent my ample blanket to shelter birds passing by

WHo is to say trees do not have feelings as fall and winter come opn. You have captured them perfectly Joni. Hope 2022 is going well for you. Allan
Good morning Allan I think trees are very special indeed. Thank you so much for reading and your kind comment Allan. It makes me so sad to see them chopping hundreds of old trees down all around where we live. Our little over an acre is covered in trees. The animals are running out of places to go. We are having a good year so far I hope your family is as well. Big hugs 🤗 Joni
Very nice, Joni, the way you’re communing with trees and the earth. 🙂
Thank you Tim. I do love the trees. They were my hiding place, friends and refuge when I was little and scared. They were not many trees that I couldn’t scale quickly. Grateful for your kind comment my friend. You have an amazing and blessed day. Hugs to you and your family Tim. ❤️
Brilliant and sparkling work Joni. You have taken the reader on a journey into an unseen world teaming with relatable emotions.
Congratulations on your poem’s publication…well deserved. Amazing writing😊.
Hello Suzette thank you so much for all your kind words. Really, what a thoughtful thing to say. Blessings to you and your family and may 2022 be an amazing year for you and your family. Love, Joni
You are most welcome Joni. Cheers to creativity and to offering whatever talents one may have to the world in 2022.
Blessings to you and your loved ones as well.

My goodness Joni, I love this poem. Congratulations from the bottom of my heart.
WOW! What a beautiful piece.
Love. Love. Love.
Oh thank you Button. I really appreciate your lovely comment and for reading. Sending lots of love, hugs and prayers your way. ❤️🤗🥰🦋🙏😘💝 love honeybun
Thank you hon. This is such a beautiful piece. It was a real pleasure to read it.
Have a blessed Sunday.
Thank you for your kind comment, it ended up in pending comments so it got missed. I will figure out how this happens one day. I think you can only have so many comments per day and the rest get thrown in this ominous folder. Still made me smile to get it, hope you are having a blessed Sabbath too, love you xoxoxoxo
I’ve often wondered if the trees get cold, I do think they prefer the Summertime! 😊💕🌲
I love the way you think Tiffany. Isaiah 55:12 “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” I just love this reference in the bible and I believe we will be able to talk to our animals too. I think they like all the activity of summer. Sending you baskets of love and free paints and extra sketch pads because you are doing so much work on them. What a great idea to start carrying that pad around with you and creating whenever you get that creative piece beginning to flow through you. Love you Tiffany, please stay safe and blessings to you and your honeybun.
That is beautiful, Joni, thank you for sharing! 💐🙏
You are so welcome sweetheart. Hope your work has settled down. ❤️🤗🥰

This is. such a beautiful piece Joni! Pretty sure I LIKED it there already but I’m going to run and see! 💖
You are so sweet Cindy. Although I appreciate your reading I would prefer you were resting sweetie seriously. Please don’t worry about reading my post. I think you need to rest. Please Cindy! I love you, Joni
Oh you are soooo sweet. I did love that piece and that was so restful my friend. I LOVE reading your posts. Looks like the like button worked for me, I hope. I had commented before but maybe the like button didn’t work then IDK. Thanks so much.. It was a breakthrough morning and I’ve turned a corner. 💖💖
Oh Cindy I am thrilled to hear that you have truly turned a corner. Praise God I was worried about you. I am glad the Button worked for you. I just go with what ever is going on as I am not in control. They are working on the problem. It is browser related. They have a very big job. I truly am happy to hear you are feeling better. Yea!!!!!!! 🎉🎊🎈
Thanks so much Joni! MEEE too. I hope it stays like this. It’s been a new phase for me the last 2 years and I do hope we will be in for a change. Thank you so much for the prayers. YAYY I hope it shows for you that it worked! They do and key word, it’s there job. So many problems with it, gets old after awhile.
Thanks again, I am too! 💖
We have many very old Sycamores in the river below The Holler. You captured their amazing grace.
What a kind thing to say. They are such beautiful trees and make homes for many creatures. I am so glad you liked it because you obviously appreciate their beauty too. Thanks Cindy for reading and have a blessed day. 🦋❤️
