Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.

Me As Trees

A friend of mine posted a way of recycling your ashes so that your mineral remains get incorporated into a newly planted tree. So that gave me an idea for transforming one of my favorite poems, Trees by Joyce Kilmer. I had never thought about eventuaLLy becoming part of a tree, I am just planning on slowly becoming a rock in western South Dakota.


Me As Trees
by Ernest S B Boston

I think that I would like to be
An integral part of a tree

A tree that has grown up from the ground
Where my ashes could be found

So after a life of trouble and toil
The mineral me had become some soil

A bird could build her nest on me
And raise a family tiny and wee

When people ask how, you could show 'em
That parts of me are woody phloem!

So even if you are not really into this
I'll still be carrying on photosynthesis

As my magnesium atoms are a part of solar collection
I'm enjoying making an energetic connection

If you miss me and feel I need a hug
Just give my bark a great big tug

I guess perhaps the best eternal rest
Is being part of an evergreen for-ever-est

Nicely done Mr ESB. . .

Rob!!!! That was perfect!!!! I cracked up laughing ... I have transformed that poem once before as a tomato vine wrote from my dog's perspective. (Computers are strange: It autocorrected dog's to Doug's)
