Amanda, of Unique Art Chic, has a weekly challenge where we can feature our own poetry and photography. This week, I wanted to share my unique Christmas Tree made from driftwood. The picture on the left is the Chesebro family name history. The picture on the right is my brother-in-law, my father-in-law, and my husband, who at the time all worked for McDonald Douglas in Long Beach, California many years ago. The driftwood tree represents our family.
Our Florida Christmas Driftwood Tree
d d d
This tree represents our family –
plummeted about in the rough seas of life,
spread out – yet still strong.
Holding the sounds of the Gulf in its tumbled wood limbs,
echoing our children and grand-children,
all the while scattered like the sea shells
tumbled upon the beach.
