The Ugly Tree


they laughed
called her ugly

she was hunched
but tall

full of knots
brittle yet tough

an easy target
for bullies

then came the fire
it destroyed her

they could find no another
as beloved
to taunt

it left them vulnerable
and consumed
with rage

annoyed
she no longer existed
for their twisted pleasure

Voice Of The Inanimate


one day
from out of the blue
a wildflower
appeared
and chose
this rock
as her home

part of her
resided
in a crevice
where his heart
would be
and that
changed everything

she taught him
about friendship
and he was grateful
until
her untimely death

sure
it’s a rock
but it
is now a he
and since her death
he mourns

rock requests
that in lieu of cards
be kind
to all flowers
that you meet
along the way

and thanks you
for your sympathy
