April Poetry Month Day 9 Poem: Friend On Highway

For today's poem, I chose an image of a tree I had met during one of my highway rides. The poem is about what I felt when I looked in the image.

A Lone Tree Image for Poem: Friend On Highway

found picture of an old friend
heard it calling me,
“still waiting on highway
come here again to meet me

my leaves’ve left me
alive with my weak branches
waiting with the moon
to meet you again

my leaves will regrow
my branches will grow stronger
I’ll dance with the rain again
come to meet me once again"
