A Tree’s Deception

by Star   Jun 16, 2021


it’s not
quiet
because
you asked
for it to be,

it’s because
you’re
the only one

left

under the
old tree

in that
barren area,
you were
thirsty

yet she
stood
tall,

so green

like the
entire world
had given her
all
she
needs

    Firstly, I like how you haven't capitalized any letters, as it reflects how you've layed the text out in little segments in the center of the page. Subsequently, the poem looks very light and pleasing to see.
    Secondly, the title is very clever referring to the subject of this. Speaking of the subject, it was fascinating. I love poems that make you think and wonder. I perceived it as in someone is alone, there's no noise, they're resting beneath the tree. Maybe they're not so happy. And the one think they're resting on, the one thing they cling to, is the tree, that has everything they need/want ( metaphorically or otherwise ). That's what I took from it, anyway, but I'm half asleep and I could come back tomorrow and slap my head, telling myself his I got it all wrong :)
    I liked the consistent subtle rhymes throughout this, too. It's very rhythmic and almost lulling - if this isn't going to send me to sleep in my current state, nothing will! Lol.
    Thoroughly enjoyed this :)
