This poem is about the history behind trees but with a lot of metaphors.

The beautiful bold trees

originated from the shallow seas

and the deceased deserts.


They did three things

throughout history:

releashed the dark angels

from time, devoured the 

fruit that grew upon it,

and threw away the

moons heart.


They are famous for

sending secret wishes 

to the arc of stone.


And at the end of the world

it will connect the 

forgotten light to the 

silver palace of the

last lost darkness.

Deep poem. I totally get all of the metaphors but then again I was never good at interpreting poetry.

Me neither but sometimes poetry is just based on imagery and images so they don't have to always make since they can just be based on creativity and based on a lot of metaphors. Poetry basically gives you a chance to write and think freely. Thank you for reading my poem!
