Tales to Tell

A tree

is wise

with many tales to tell.

Old ones, beautiful ones

even their own.

How they

grew tall,

loving the endless beams

of sunlight,

Moonlight sang

them to sleep,

Crickets were music to them.

Fireflies were

lights.

Frost were quiet neighbours

often on vacation,

barely next door.

Snow was a

mere decoration

taken away before

they knew it.

Next time you meet a tree,

ask them

for a tale to tell.
