Milkweed Tree





This is a build at Immersiva called Milkweed Tree. I had found a milkweed over the winter in a park not too far from me. It was brittle and dead but still had most of its seeds.

Here it is! ---------------------------------------------->

For those of you who don't know this plant, the milkweed is the main food of the Monarch butterfly. It has a nasty white milk inside which tastes terrible but makes the Monarch also taste terrible to its predators. Don't ask how I know the milk tastes terrible.

Anyway, what I really wanted to talk about is the song used in the machinima. I was incredibly flattered when ColeMarie Soleil took a poem I wrote and turned it into this song. She really is an amazing talent. But beyond her musical abilities she also pretty much makes a machinima a day. Here are her machinima Rockerfaerie and below is the poem.

Should you wish to find the machinima in world then click on the firefly shown at the beginning.






I watched you leave me

A year ago this dawn
But I have rusted gears
So I can't move on

I wanted to tell you
How I felt that day
I searched my software
For something to say

You left me for
Emotions true
Now I will forever search
For someone like you
