NaPoWriMo 2019, Day 5

5 Apr


The above painting is The Cypress Tree by Vincent Van Gogh, but is not the actual inspiration for today’s poem. Today’s poem, “Cypress” is based on Greek and Roman mythology of Cyparissus and Aphrodite, both of whom had specific legends based on cypress trees. I love the Cypress—we have them here in Texas, often growing out of rivers. They’re so beautiful!




Note: I only leave poems up for about a week before removing them, so I can edit and submit later.
