Listen To The Forest

listen to the forest
branches of trees
want to speak
they saw many things
faithful witnesses
of human past

listen to the forest
although trees live in a cluster
they drink independently 
the juice from the earth
they also dream about the spring 
after harsh winter

listen to the forest
trees grow so long 
fighting not once
with a bright lightning
with a gusty wind
with a burning sun

listen to the forest
the autumn leaves
shimmer with gold
take this gift with gratitude
looking at everything
with attention and love
