such a beautiful tree

O father of trees

you stand there in all your years

in your soaring dignity

and fresh green grace

your great tree soul

so generously


in our town square.

Decades of fragrant life,

life giving heart of wood,

hacked down for just a few days,

slowly dying.

    oh sarah;
    I feel both you and the tree in your connection….. the folly ; the error ; the blindness of our petty excess to please and conform …..stay true my dear friend
    as your heart shall always guide you …..xoxo
