Poetry Break: ‘Tree’

By Rev-Kev/ Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin, Ph.D.

Tree

A tree in spring looks vibrant and alive,

much like the young climbers of summer.

In the fall majesty and beauty

temp the eye for a moment;

deep tans start to fade,

picnicking under falling leaves.

Winter’s chill on brittle branches

and bones,

a legacy of constant change;

memories rooted in seasons past.
