Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Poetry Submission

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for submitting your poem for consideration for Featured Poem of the Month for December.  I love the perspective in this poem – the tree wondering about itself – losing its leaves – generating new ones – perhaps flowering – producing fruit – lovely way of presenting the feelings and experiences of trees.  If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to incorporate more imagery in your poem so that we could experience what you feel – what the tree feels – on a sensory level.  Example:  "Deeper my roots run/like fingers reaching down/searching through the stony ground."  Very well done and I thank you for your interest in www.poetladykatz.com  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>

<p>An old leaf parting off -<br />I can hear the sound as it detached.<br />Or was it the sound of a new one generating through my skin, with which I'm still attached?</p>
<p>A part of my bark that I shed,<br />Reveals the fresh juicy thing.<br />So I'm at loss -<br />Am I getting old or <br />Evolving to a new being?</p>
<p>Deeper my root runs <br />Through the stony ground,<br />More wanderers I can see around<br />Resting under my shade.<br />I don't mourn the parts I shed.</p>
