2015 Day 23 – This tree

tree

This tree
Is exotic and beautiful
But not very Manc.
This tree
Has flowers
Like huge purple bells
And doesn’t match
The scruffy pigeons
That peck at its feet.
This tree
Wants to tell stories
Of far-away places
And sapphire dragons.
This tree
Startled me awake
This morning.

Note: The prompt was to write a “pastoral” poem, or on which engaged with nature.
