Hey baby! Look at me!
Aren’t I a lovely willow tree!
I think I’m pretty sexy!
How many trees can lay like this?
Come on over!… Give me a kiss!
I’ll treat you to some woody bliss!
I’m out here on this beach,
So my bark can bray a sultry speech,
To bring you within my reach.
Here I am, right by the sand!
Green pom-pom in my pretty hand!
I think I look so very grand!
Don’t you just love my shaggy top!
You think i’m easy? OH Stop!!
Before I call a cop!…
A poetic treatise on a real tree tease! Just a little nonsense. Doesn’t this look just like a sassy pom-pom girl of a tree?
I took this picture of a willow tree at Lake Phalen in St. Paul, Minnesota in August of 2012. Such an unusual tree. It reminded me of a model posing. It even has a belly button. So, this poem was always waiting to come out. It finally did as I was going through my photographs.
