Two-faced Tree

Two-Faced Tree

 by A. Gagliardi

In my yard stands the two-faced tree
Neither one looks at me
For nobody i am
And no one they see.

In my yard stand twin pine trees
Neither of which i own
For nobody i am
And they no one owns.

In my yard stands a lone bonsai
With branches shorn and tied
Which claims no greater need
Than to see and be seen by me.

Here is an image of one two-faced tree. I wonder if there are more of them out there.

I can do that. How's this? I am currently looking for a third face, at which time, the symetry will be lost, but people will be able to see a face from all directions.

hi azure_sky

thanks for your comment. I thought it had some humor, two. unfortunately, one of the faces fell off completely and a squirrel sat on the eye of the second face. Now, it is just a mouth and an eye. I am planning to replenish the faces.
