The Tuesday Poem

The Tuesday Poem this week is "The Baobab Tree" by Rachel Sawaya. 

Andrew Bell is the editor of Tuesday Poem this week, and he says of Rachel's poem:

"I love the idea that this old tree is spreading and growing over the dead, reclaiming them into the natural world. And the tree, unlike humans, is not judgemental, but forgiving and it gives final resting place to "young mothers,/dead in childbirth/or of dwarves,/forbidden/to rest in the ground.""
