BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

dendroid
/ˈdɛndrɔɪd/
adjective: Biology

(of a plant, marine invertebrate, or structure) tree-shaped; branching.


Embrace

take my hand, dendroid embrace, before this parting
as new moments spread, emergent, basked in morning
blessed binding of ourselves to truth, as nature, bursting
forth towards an apex, fertile conflagration, grasping
need to be more than this is apart, without the hurting:
tree-shaped passion, bloom, within my heart.
