see whether or not
branches reaching to the sky
hold my body's weight
slight imperfections in my personality are NOT to be considered flaws but show that i am handmade and of the highest quality.

That's a good one, Dryad, but you didn't tag on the last line.

of the mother oak should be your first line. Then someone will tag onto your last line. Would you care to try it again?

Of the mother oak
but an acorn setting forth
falling into life

saying my goodbyes
underneath the yellow pines
on the Indian Trail

(Sorry, I couldn't help but put in the Indian Trail when I thought of the yellow pines: From the Official 2007 Indian Trail Centennial Poet.)

clouds creep 'cross darkening sky
shadows fall on trunks
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.
