HOLLY JOLLY HOLIDAYS: Snow On Trees by Sheri Lindner #PoetryPlace

Hi Everybody and Happy Holly Jolly Holidays to You!

This morning, I’ve got a treat for you from one of our newest members of the Writer’s Grapevine Community.

So, without further delay Here’s Sheri’s beautiful winter’s poem.

Snow On Trees

by Sheri Lindner

Overnight they become old men

osteoporotic

bent over to less than half their height

heavy with the weight of the world

on their shoulders and backs.

I work loose

limbs that have been buried

before their time,

comb the heaviness

from their frost-shocked heads.

In my hands

for just this moment,

the secret of the fountain of youth

time turned back

wise old, cocky young saplings

proudly erect again

waving at God

their whole lives before them.
