This is a poem of mine, written a few months ago, which won second prize in the Whizolosophy June-July poetry competition. Inspired by the forests of Oregon, and some sophistry, this is one of my
proudest pieces.

Your hair acts as branches, your head's full of leaves. The way I see it, we're all walking trees
 Roots run throughout us, keeping sap distilled; strange plants are we, only planted when killed

A wonder, I don't doubt,  weird tree people we, what grows in our heads tends to creep out. 
All trees make fruit, it grows on branch ends; here's another tip, sharing fruit is how trees make friends.

Old looming oak trees will tell you it's all up to fruits, if a tree has decent roots; But a tree's a tree, in trunks or in shoots. Many types of trees may comfort the bereaved. It can be a small relief to those who grieve to make hot drinks from bitter tasting leaves.

There are trees who grow fruit ever so rarely; these trees might need a helping hand, but among those who wait, seldom growing fruit is in high demand.

You might see among those who think growing's a race. We can all be found guilty of having fruit or leaves hang in our face. It's no sin to have hanging branches, to be caught in a freeze ; What's just not right are trees who cut down other trees.

Well we might all be trees, that would be fine. Sometimes it's hard to see, with a head full of bramble and vines.
