Poet-Tree

Cluster of words
Form thoughts
Like berries in the bush
Fruit on the vine
Poems…fruit
Of the poet-tree
Tangy, juicy, real
Passionate
Liberating
Untamed
Unchecked
Growing wild
Along side roads
In the forests
Near river banks
Sustaining life
No preservatives
Or censorship
Rich in nutrients
All who partake
Rejuvenated
Enlightened
Sweet summer wine
Awaits your innocent lips
Salvation is in the jam.
