Dispensing Pine

DSCN7394_edited-1

The poplar, pine and paper oak
stretch crowns, trunks, and branches
upward pose toward the Provider.

Shedding of the old …
needles bumping and bouncing
clutching, clinging tree crevices.

Chestnut cones tumbling;
skid, slip, spill, stumble
down each sturdy branch.

Seeds donated for another season.

“And God said, “See I have given you every herb that yields seeds which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.”Genesis 1:29

Over at dVerse words are bouncing in blocks of a 44 word count.

  1. “The poplar, pine and paper oak” … I love that alliteration.

    This is my favorite part:

    “Chestnut cones tumbling;
    skid, slip, spill, stumble
    down each sturdy branch.”

  2. How beautiful. I love your inclusion of the Bible verse.
    When I first read this line:
    “upward pose toward the Provider”
    I misread it as “upward prose.” Which was also fitting. A Psalm, to their Maker.
