An Arch of Trees

Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor

                       An Arch of Trees in acrylic AVR 2011

I passed under the Arc de Triomphe,
     victory of the French Revolution;

I passed under the Arch of Constantine,
   of the emperor’s coronation;

I passed under the Triumphal Arch of Tyre
     Lebanon’s necropolis bastion;

I passed under the Tijuana border Arch,
     marker of Mexican- American union;

I passed under natural rock arches
    that have survived time and erosion.

I passed under the Arch of the Centuries,
     UST’s 400-year celebration;

I pass under the arches of the rainforest,
      seat of biodiversity and evolution.

 I passed under an arch of trees at home,
     sweet nature and human union.~
