Aunty Verna Barker reflects on her poem 'Cubby House Tree' for POEM FOREST 2021.

Poem writing about my 'Cubby House Tree' is my connection with part of my childhood as I lost my Mother's love through child birth. With all my emotions and sadness I found comfort making Cubby House Trees. In the the Cubby House Tree I felt safe and secure, clinging to the only piece of a Mother's love, to feel and touch her presence as she was always with me.
