It is difficult to write about trees today without thinking about deforestation, climate change and fossil fuels. Many of the products we use every day are made from trees or cause the felling of trees. A recent supermarket announcement in Britain showed the destruction of forests and orangutan habitats caused by palm oil production. It is estimated that more than half of the products sold in supermarkets contain palm oil and that dozens of orangutans (and other creatures) die every day as a direct result. The gingko tree grows in a country other than the spokesman`s house and, as such, is associated with « Chinese » in this poem. But for millions of people, gingkobeumes are home and perhaps not Chinese culture. This idea of « strangeness » is difficult to navigate and might be interesting to think about in your poems. You may have some relationship with a certain type of tree, but this relationship is different for everyone. « She refers to her « daughter, the poet, » and she takes out one of my poems and kisses her, » she says.
They can be inspired by the beauty and mysticism of tree words. Read Howard Nemerov`s poem « Learning the Trees, » in which he pays tribute to « The Language of Trees. » The spokesperson`s tenderness is felt in their lists: « Samara, capsule, drupe, legumes and pome ».

Write a poem about a tree you love, hate, fear or feel strong. Take a look at your list of tree words and think about the memories and stories you associate with these trees. Does this draw you to a particular tree? What`s special about you in a beech tree, unlike an acacia or a baobab tree? Some trees may not make souvenirs or images; some may remind you when you were little, your home or walk to school. Read Catherine Bowman`s poem « Story of a Tree, » in which the spokesperson describes a tree they love in San Antonio. Examine the impressive images in Bowman`s poem, especially « You were my first true church. » Can you use equally impressive images in your poem? Can the answer to the first invitation be a prose of writing or does it necessarily have to be a poem? Thank you for your comment – you can always enter as many poems as you like into the Young Poets network challenges (and we encourage you to do so!), unless otherwise stated. We look forward to your poems. « Elise lives her poems and abruptly makes her poems in life, which inevitably means sadness and tenacity, as well as a powerful joy.
His legacy of Osage marks many of their work, such as the heartbreaking « Wi-gi-e » over the murder of Osage`s wife, Anna Kyle Brown, in 1921 for oil rights to her country. But if she is part of the Indian, Elise is also, simple, native to the land, originating from the elementary experiences of birth, making love and mourning, expressed in poems of passion and humor. She thus welcomed the birth of a daughter: « Naked Warrior: she is ours. Whole rich people are overthrown. « Convento Capucho. A new poem by me talks about the « capuchin monk technique » that Salvador Dali uses to capture his dreams. I was fascinated to visit this monastery of Capuchin monks, built in the rocks of the Serra de Sintra National Park.
