fire tree, ice flower

Fire Tree

Fire Tree burning loudly

Walking around

burning everything in sight

And had a smouldering black bark

as dark as space.

Its raging red leaves

wailing at passers’ by like an alarm.

Its twigs as thin as French fries

and trunk like Dumbo’s legs,

Along with roots

that dug as deep as a mole.

Ice Flower

Ice Flower has petals

as blue as the sea

And a slender stem like a pencil led.

It has a blue bud

covered with freezing frost

Along with a leaf

small and shrivelled

Like a burnt chip from McDonalds.

Its roots cry in hope

Waiting patiently for warmth and comfort.
