Tree Tale with FranK Onuoha

Tree tale

March 14, 2015

Sitting under a long leafy tree
On a mild and serene noon
With some Natures best creatures
A stray buzzing bee
A colony of black ants
A handful of wild mushrooms
And some twittering birds
The breeze blows at intervals
Bringing the smell of Cattle to us
And the trees leaves tried to see
Those who took refuge under her comfort
Blushing at the admiration on our eyes
As we perceive the sweet fragrance from her flowers
While the fruits fall solemnly
What a sight this is!
The cute plummages on the birds
The birds sitting on the tree
On this quiet and calm Sun
And us sitting under the trees warmth!
