she grew into a tree
branches of honey
dipping leaves into pools of plenty
the forest fed her
the winds soothed her
the skies washed her
and the snows bruised her
before the end of time took her away
seed by seed
around the earth
sprouting sister
islands of mirth
around her girth
the squirrels would chatter
merry moments of mad hatter laughter
each bird in her branches
blessed her with natures gentle touch
the monarch
the lark
the magpie and owl
all friends of hers
she knows them so well
her tongue reaches deep into the earth
sucking from corpses
and bowels of red dirt
the life giving
intravenous gift
of water till it hurts
she fills her sails with the sound of angels
a tree of desire never meant for the fire
so grand is she
i can only
sit beneath her great leaves
and peer into the stars of her canopy
and wish that i were as majestic
as this silent, ageless wreath
of color and mystery
