Ode to a Tree.

Whatever makes a tree
want to be a tree?
Rooted in the ground,
instead of roaming free?

To hold together the earth,
serve as home to legions,
convert poisons into air…
Be a true being of magic.

A creature of energy,
renewing itself always,
in concentric rings
of ageless power.

Next time you meet a tree,
bow your head in awe,
be very humble
and give thanks!
