The dog tree

  The dog tree


My leaves were darker than

 a shadow but in the summer 

they turn red.

My trunk is stronger than 

a rhino horn. My roots bend 

and twist like cooked spaghetti.

My branches are like swords but 

some of them come out like rats’ tails.

My bark is  like  a blanket all over me.

 It keeps me warm and snuggly.

  1. A lovely poem, Tommy. I like the simile of the bark being like a warm and comforting blanket.
