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!

Beside a waterhole
a sad tree was planted
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
the mercy of the burning
sad tree
twisted ivy
in the minds
of blank onlookers
the sad tree
discovered redemption
in the brushing of a cross
in the hope
never truly knowing
in the rooted earth
every lasting life
in the ache
of birth
turn your head
give away your perfect suit
pick up your roots
be gone
black as coal
light as the few
