Of The Trees



Of The Trees


Out of the darkness of the earth

Grew a mighty tree,

With leaves that reach the sky

And branches that touch the sea.

I long to be just like that tree

At one with everything,

To live and breathe

Just to be

In love, of love.

To sway without breaking in the wind

To come from darkness while

Always reaching towards the light,

Each knot and gnarly branch

A beautiful

Ode to many earthly years.

I long for the wisdom of the trees

To take time to listen to the whispers

Of the earth and sky

While letting go of busy days.
