Tree’s Tableau*

Sways with the soft wind
produces new leaves,
bears flower and fruits
stands firm on its roots.
With changing seasons,
it breathes with reasons.

The Tableau is an invented stanzaic form that paints a single image in keeping with the name of the form, tableau meaning picture. Created by Emily Romano who suggests the word “tableau” be included in the title. The Tableau is:

  • stanzaic, written in any number of sixains.
  • syllabic, 5 syllable lines.
  • rhyme at the discretion of the poet.
  • written describing a single image.
  • written with a title that includes the word “tableau”.
