Lost and Found: A Love Story (short story/poem)

Supermoon deserves a super tribute,don’t you think? A love story maybe?
There is nothing super about this short story/poem but it was appreciated when I wrote for a photo-prompt contest where I got the first place with the most number of plusses in my community on g+,I’m too bad at picture prompts,with that in my head,I set out to write only because I had to,then the picture started speaking and came this to me,even now I don’t think much about my write but I’m hoping you’ll like…
The following is a screenshot declaring the winners,it was a little something special,served as encouragement to me.


The fir tree for most of it’s budding years saw only dark
for it was surrounded by taller trees with denser barks…
it slowly with time started growing
and the true colours of the world started showing…
then on a dull night
it saw something bright but thin in the sky…
that crescent triggered unfamiliar emotions
the fir tree’s mind was blown…
in the coming days the tree saw it’s love grow
brighter mysteriously bigger till the crescent became whole…
the tree’s world came to a halt and it swooned
at the sight of the magical full moon…
the tree stretched itself for reaching
the source of light in which it was basking…
it was neither winning nor losing
for it felt pretty blessed to be sighting…
the most beautiful thing there is
it wanted to reach out and kiss…
only the thought of it made the tree blush
but the distance was far too much…
the tree swore by the moon’s glow
that while everyone falls in love it would instead grow…
to be able to touch
the one source of it’s joy and love…
…and to the fir tree and it’s love the moon was oblivious completely
for the moon had a billion more lovers who loved it insanely
