‘The Tree’

tree 2There you stood- majestic in your greatness 

Rising above all others – claiming the heavens for your own

A beauty was apparent – despite aging scars – the obvious signs of decay

Still you retained the ability to raise my heartfelt admiration

What onslaughts had you endured – I wondered

How many and how fierce the storms you had weathered

tree 1

Could you count the stars – when you were small and green

Did others tower above you – as now – you hold that high position

tree 3

What tales you could tell

Yet – just in being – you tell a tale – of endurance – of strength

Of stability amidst such changing surroundings

I’m so glad I met you – listened to what you had to say

And – paused a while – to learn from one so wise
