Trees


Majestic pillars
In silent solemnity
Guardians of
Cathedral simplicity
Filtered light
Through stain glassed
Leaves of green
And haunting melody a
Single chant of
Solitary bird
Crystal note flung heavenward
Ascends into the canopy

Wardens of their history
Told in rings and
Wisdom earthed
Custodians of secrets
Whispered on winged winds
Pondered with slow rising sap
They’ve seen it all
Unperturbed by what might be
Storms still to be unleashed
Fire’s fierce fury
They have survived
In tranquil splendour
