Budding Life

This poem is inspired by the date today 3-8 and the fact that it is my sister’s birthday! Those numbers comprise the syllables in each line. 3 -8-3-8-3-8 (etc.) This is also her 62nd birthday and that adds up to 8 and she is the 3rd child. Oh, and I only used 11 lines, because 3 + 8 = 11So, I guess I would title this syllabic form: Special Occasion Syllabic Poetry

In the trees

Branches are budding at their ends

Potential

For oh so many lovely leaves

And critters

Will build nests to house their young ones

Protected

From the hunters of easy prey

As well as

The elements of wind and rain

In the trees
