Reader’s Poem: Resplendent Tree


Bursting forth upon the landscape

Brilliant colors dance and bloom

Hear the whisper of a stranger

Inspiration is renewed

Stirring clouds and souls in silence

Now it hastens me to stare

And it lures me into presence

Like a verdant breath of air

Resplendent in a single tree

In deep abundant fields

Lives a timeless wealth of beauty

And a narrative revealed

It magnificently towers

Over swaying strands of gold

Feel it beckoning me onward

As a masterpiece unfolds
