A tree standing tall in the middle of a forest.

Slumbering giant,
towering giant,
standing tall, a proud parent
in your kingdom of green.
🌲
Years pass by,
rings hidden in your timber,
marking the timeless
rising and falling of the sun.
🌲
Ancient and regal,
you stand alone,
and yet you’re rooted deep,
connected to earth,
🌲
a hidden underground network
roots of arbors
that look up to you,
in the sea of rolling treetops.
🌲
You are their protector.

Even from a good distance away,
I feel your noble presence,
emanating in the clearing,
blanketing everything that surrounds you.
🌲
I close my eyes,
accepting your peace,
and the deep, silent wisdom
that resonates into my soul.
🌲
You are alive,
more alive than…
