I posted this on tumblr and allowed people to answer to it so I could see what people thought it was about and one person said 'It's about trees and a lack of imagination'. Really? Are people that lacking in understanding of poetry? I hope people on here are more understanding. I'm actually a little nervous about uploading because of that reaction on tumblr, but I'm hoping on a writing website it'll be a better reaction right...?

The Tree in the Wind

Branches pulled left, right and centre,
some even forced loose and left
to float free fall into the wind.
Leaves desperately trying to stay put
and not reveal the baron bark beneath

The trunk standing firm, standing strong
determined not to move or be moved,
knowing itself and its place.
Roots deeply buried, unseen but they're
the backbone of this tree, making it what it is.
