Like the everlasting trees
Of the most symbolic

Our ancients bare green before us
Full in their lustrous branches
Roots firmed in their foundation
While with the passing breeze
Our limbs naked and thin
We waive

    1. Thank you for your kind words, partandparcel2014. I’ll leave you to interpret the words however they may reach you. However, the specific passage that provided the impetus for me to write the poem can be found in the first paragraph to introduction to “Nature.” You can find it here. :)

  1. I simply love trees–for their majesty and dignity. Also for what they give to us: oxygen, shade, a place for critters to live. They exude a special kind of energy that I can feel when I’m around them. Sounds odd, but they are so “grounded” thus so calming.
