Poem: The Tree Outside my Lab World

Updated on November 21, 2017

image captured thru my phone...


The tree outside my lab world.

Almost three years had gone

Since my feet touched this ground.

I saw you alone and silent.

I have no clue of my real excitement.

When I got in, a working world comes in.

Too busy to appreciate things outside,

Too tired to take a glimpse,

But when everything gets heavy out of the blue;

When my boredom caress my day-

I always seek you.

A view outside the fire exit door

There you are, steadily swaying with the wind

Together with the gigantic mountains, the vast sky, and the golden field

Delighted when the sun’s radiant beams touches your greenish face

You spot me, I smile.

You never forget to greet me whatever your mood is

Whatever your look may seem, you’re still there…waiting

Alone but still standing

There are times that it seems your lifeless when the last leaf drops…

But you’re brave, your life goes on

You can manage to be so magnificent when the right time comes

I’m glad to hear your name—fire tree it is?

Can’t figure out why such a name.

But whatever it is, it doesn’t matter

Appreciating you gives me inspiration

Unleash me from sheer desperation

I’m happy to meet you, glad that I’ve found you

And I still want to see you there,

Even another three years from now.

      Beautiful expression of something we see everyday, but fail to look at the beauty of something special

      I had to know you, pinkhawk, after seeing you'd commented on one of my hubs. And your poem with it's vivid imagery of that tree, the mountain and field - & your relationship with them, is awe-inspiring. I'm so glad you came to my site and gave me the opportunity to know you and visit yours!

      Absolutely beautiful pink, I loved every word and line. It captured me. The beauty and value of nature and the emotions it inspires.

      @ alternate poet-- thank you for appreciating it sir/ma'm! Filipino or Tagalog (with many Spanish and English loan words in the vocabulary) is my first or native language, but since English is the international language, we have English subject/lesson in school... I know my English is not perfect esp. the grammar, I still need to learn a lot!
