Day 13 - Hugging a tree

13th Oct 2019

Hugging a tree?

We're on Day 13 of the OctPoWriMo challenge. I'm afraid the prompt, "Hugging a Tree" didn't do anything for me today.
So, what to post instead? OK, here goes: I have tried a Loop poem today . 

Exploring poetry in all its forms.

The Wood of the Tree.

Who, I wonder cut down the tree 
from where it lived 
lived in harmony with the others
until that day 
day and night it was kept in some 
place waiting
waiting for the time it was needed
its task to perform
perform it did the most perverse deed
of all time
time was getting near, they brought 
out the man
man above all men, he did not speak 
he took it
it was the cross that Jesus embraced 
for us, with love 
love brought him to his knees three
times in fell
fell in pain and sorrow with the weight 
of our sins
sins that we now feel our own deep 
sorrow for
for as surely as we are sinners we nailed
him to that tree.
