    Great trees surround me

    Beneath the canopy

    I humbly exist

    In their presence

    My time ~

    Is leased;

    No rings,

    Denote this

    Rent to own

    Flesh on bone

    Whose bark is

    Worser,

    Than their might

    Branches tap

    Tap, tap...

    On my window pane

    Mocking my shallow roots

    But shudder in a constant storm

    Almost human :heart:

    wow.......the theories present in the life of a tree.....it's rings

    that tell it's history, age and the things that it has seen

    and then there's us.......frail by comparison....

    it's bark...and conversly our flesh.......

    wow..........this was great 1poet...........

    I love how your mind works! and how it flows from you as a poet!

    your work always makes me take a second look at everything...
    a tree is no longer a tree
    but a symbol in my reality
    and i love it :)
    said it once...I'll say it again...
    glad you're back :)
