Day 22: To (Poetically) Prune a Bonsai Tree

Bonsai tree grows in a paper shaped flower pot
Covered in letter leaves,
The root meaning fasten deep in the soil
With vine coiled word branches,
It reaches for the sun

My number 2 pencil clips the word branches
Trim letter leaves
Shape phrase patches
And thin crown statements
Defoliate to uncover the poetry scheme
To reveal the poem of a Bonsai Tree

(If needed, creation pruning the title base.)
