The Magic Tree

Alone here

In the secret garden

Heavy, sickly heat

My snowflake gown


A cool breeze

Just now

Consoles me

I feel him


I see him

Walk on by

Dripping with dread

Clad in Red


He stands now


The Magic Tree

Crashing cymbals


Anguished screams

“Where are you, my Love?!?

Where, my Everything?!?

Why hast thou forsaken me?!?”

The first stoic man in Blue


Striding through

“Blue Man,

The man clad in Red,

Full of dread

Is this the one

You seek?

Be gentle

He has lost

Is lost


He is crying


You will find him


The Magic Tree…”

Blue stoic

Growing empathy


For Red’s sorrow

I see the Tree

Is not as Magic

As I hoped

It could be

For, surely,

If it were


There would be


The Blue men

Gently shepherd

The Red man


I must

Make haste

Of this place

Tout suite

  1. I love the terse lines and how they flow into each other. The imagery is quite surreal, which I find myself liking.

    • Thanks a bunch, Rigel!

      It WAS all very intense and surreal. The Magic Tree is a sculpture in a little-known garden of the same name. So obscure is it I could not find it even after googling the heck out of it.

      Thanks for checking out my blog! Hope you have a great day! 💋

      • That sounds amazing. I hope you come across it. I’d love to see what it looks like. 🙂 That’s not to say the way you rendered it in your poem wasn’t satisfactory, of course. Loved the imagery in your poem. 🙂

      • Like, wow! Thanks a bunch! 💋
