Artist's Description

Digital Painting of a Tree in Kauai and the power in the land

I have not stopped thinking about the works of
LisaG and her newest piece called Sad Tree it got my mind and heart juiced up!

SAD TREE

_*Beside a waterhole
a sad tree was planted

seasonally
it leaned forward

in a spirited attempt
to soulfully drench

an act of love

it did it all
without shame

smoke often filled the air
the sad tree
was the last of its breed

it had seen a fair amount
it had danced the last dance

all that was left was to
take care of its bounty

no more travel
c’est la vie

a railway line sang blue
as the willow
spoke to flesh and blood

flesh ran
to the rose bush without bud
asking for no reason

why must I hang my head?

It was the truth

a bird floating from the heavens
hid
behind
the mercy of the burning
sad tree

twisted ivy
seeded
in the minds
of blank onlookers

the sad tree
discovered redemption
in the brushing of a cross

in the hope
of
never truly knowing

in the rooted earth
of
every lasting life

in the ache
of birth

turn your head
give away your perfect suit

pick up your roots
be gone

understand
black as coal
light as the few*_
