The Banyon

Banyon1
I am a tangled
tagliatelle tree, whose
branches reach for release
in the clouds. Climb my slim,
proud, ribbonous strands.
Hug me.
Tighter.
For I am a tree.

  1. Now I’m hungry for Italian food :( haha

  2. I loved your beautiful desrcriptive words and the “hug me” was a neat twist.

  3. If I could get passed the spookiness (to me) of the tree, it would be perfect for climbing.

  4. Tagliatelle tree – I love that. And I hug every tree I get close enough to so I’m with you on that one. I like that the tree is speaking.

  5. Pasta? Now I’m craving. Love the “Hug me. Tighter.”
