Christmas Present

A lovely pine with special meaning
Its very presence a sweet delight
Standing here before me

Snowflakes grace its gentle branches
Their luster offering a sign
A lovely pine with special meaning

Looking closer, a nest appears
A hidden gift within its branches
Its very presence a sweet delight

Imagine lights upon this lovely pine
Soon to be our Christmas tree
Standing here before me

It’s been several months since I’ve attempted a cascade poem. This one is my response to Sue Vincent’s (Daily Echo) Thursday Photo Prompt – Christmas Present – #writephoto, with her photo.
Cascade ~ four three-line stanzas, without rhyme
               ~ three lines of the first verse used successively as last lines of following verses
               ~ line pattern A/B/C, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C
               ~ longer poems may be created by having a longer first verse

      • My thoughts are mostly inline with Mrs. Nature! i meant do you have to cut a tree,
        “i’m not a tree hugger!”

        You Mrs. Nature is unlike humanity, she will die for you! Not that it’s needed, she has help me in may ways, most by showing her love…
