Condescending Tree

“Long skinny tree,
Tell what you see
From your vantage point
Up in the sky.”

“Well short human man,
I’ll tell if I can,
But I’m afraid
I don’t have any eyes.”

“So you mean to say
That trees go all day
Without ever seeing
Your beautiful view?”

“Yes indeed, I am blind
Just like all of my kind.
But at least I am tall,
Unlike you.”

My Mind’s Branches

My mind is an elm tree,
Or cedar, or spruce,
But not like the kind
That like to produce.

My mind may or may not
Be like a tree,
But it’s an excuse for a poem.
Did you expect better from me?

(And yes, this is happening
On New Year day three).
