Oregon’s Evergreens – Arbor Day 2020

Oregon Evergreens

Stately they stand

Strong branches holding new life

Sheltered from storms

As wind and rain beat

Steadily upon their mossy boughs

Stately they stand

Green giants waving

Strong branches holding new life

All across our land

Some are chosen

As lumber to keep people

Sheltered from storms

Triple Haiku Cascade

To exist as a nation, to prosper as a state, and to live as a people, we must have trees.” — President Theodore Roosevelt.

“Other holidays repose upon the past; Arbor Day proposes for the future.”

Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong

Tree in leaves blowing in wind, rooted deep

Tree holding strongly

Roots digging deeply

Un-battered,Un-broken

Leaves swaying

Branches dancing wildly

Whipping winds lashing

Tree standing firm

Rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted

Firm standing tree

Lashing winds whipping

Wildly dancing branches

Swaying leaves

Un-broken, Un-battered

Deeply digging roots

Strongly holding tree

Palindrome

Since today is a “Palindrome Day”—9/19/19–19/19/9, I decided to write a Palindrome Poem.
