*Other comments/interests: um...I love poetry but I'm primarily a visual artist...I work as a portrait and henna tattoo artist for kaman's art shoppes during the summer and independently year round (well I attempt to)...so I'm hoping to get some constructive criticism on my writing since I haven't really given it much attention lately.
*How did you find out about this community? random searches...I liked this site, because the poetry in it wasn't erm...roses are red and such.

*thoughts while under a tree*
Beneath this labyrinth of leaf and limb,
I transpose to grass,
And as this oak is bore from my brow
I can nearly see her puncture sky,
Soon she will fold her roots from my veins
To her breast,
And lend her bark past splintered blue
To touch immortality,
And as her edifice condenses from my scope,
I will sew her shadow to the others.
