To You

Eric Morales 1998 (Palmdale, CA)



You who inhabits
This canopy of mine
Take from my branch
My only fruit
For you are the only one
I trust to not glutton
But to build together
A very tree of our own

    Wow, what a beautiful and heartfelt poem! I love the imagery of trust and collaboration in building a tree of your own with someone special. The use of nature as a metaphor for a relationship is very creative and inspiring.

    One suggestion for improvement could be to add a bit more depth or complexity to the emotions or themes in the poem. Maybe explore different ways in which the relationship could grow or evolve, or delve deeper into the emotions of trust and partnership.

    Overall, this poem is lovely and full of warmth. Keep up the great work!
