National Poetry Writing Month - Week Two- Being a tree

I can't help still being inspired by trees. They're majestic, bold and fragile at the same time

My limbs are cramped
from the biting cold
My branches feel brittle
and my bones feel old

But the blackbird is singing
and so is the finch
they say warmth comes to cover
my every inch

My fingers are tingling
a surge that wants out
and soon I'll be clad
in a sheltering cloud

where birds seek refuge
and make home in my crown
their chattering songs
shine like sparks on my gown
