The Imp Path

The Imp Of Ivy

Tickling her way through the moss in the Spring
young imp bursts forth into the light of day
Winding a path from the trunk to the crown
by Summer’s end she will be free to kiss the sky
Ivy ympe 
Waving in the wind and waltzing in the rain
she feels for her ancient oak, making his life sensational
Her ecstatic cling informs his essential being
Thus he knows in the densest way just why his sap stirs so

Fairy Tale Kisses

Hearts for Keith and Karo
 Like kindling and kin
crispy crackling flames within
leap forth to lick the stars
whilst twilight beckons
the dawning of fresh sunlight
beaming over lover’s aureoles

Lick The Love That Drips

Posted in poetry with tags , , on February 4, 2015 by Uncle Tree

Valentine's Day

Oh, my sweetheart!
I’m so glad you chose Life
with me in yours and you in mine

We must carefully tend
our beautiful little flower
cocooned in Love so sweet

Affectionately, I thank the powers that be
ineffable and ethereal
for the innate healing power of the heart

We are cured to the maximization
all that is allowed — and then some
as our blood mingles and ferments

The finest wine cannot compare
The purest honey bows before us
The bees will lick the love that drips

For no heart can hold
the expansiveness that ever grows
beyond the reach of Time and Space

Held in Infinity’s arms
Cradled by the magnitude of each moment
we blaze a trail with the fire that never burns

Heaven’s Eternal Flame
bestowed in and around us
A warmth and a gift
we will forever share together

Hearts and Butterflies

Uncle Tree ~
For my Caro Valentine

If there’s one thing I know

it’s the love for my Caro

pinpointed like an arrow

ever aimed straight for her heart

Hesse: For Trees Eyes Only

Posted in Quotes with tags , on January 4, 2015 by Uncle Tree

a favorite author Hesse

“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured.”

Love Above The Curve

Posted in poetry with tags , on December 6, 2014 by Uncle Tree

love above the curve

I want to hold you through your everything, my love
Through thick and thin and highs and lows
through everything the wind brings in and knows
it won’t be overmuch for us to overcome, by Jove

Never more than we can handle
‘Tis according to the Lord
Zealous passions, oh, they dangle
ever since you got my gourd

That the course is never-ending
is a given we shall learn
Never breaking ~ ever bending
is this love above the curve

Peeking Near The Peak

Posted in poetry with tags , on November 16, 2014 by Uncle Tree

Fall colors

“C’mon! C’mon!” she sang.
Spontaneity, not my strong suit,
gently urged me to change my usual tune.
