Horizon and Tree

The ocean is vast and cold and very deep
Powerful waves can sink the toughest ship
On the land herders before the storm try to hide their sheep
One lone island rocky and with mountain that’s steep 

Extends to the ocean 
That is always in motion
The island is in the center of junction
Where most storms accrue and sailors see most action

The island is a giant rock no plants or animals there dwell
It is rocky wasteland resembling hell
All life it managed to repel 
But one thing that exist there is doing well

In the island center a great big tree stands there
While rest of the island is bare 
The tree is lushes green and survives with flair  
The colossal robust rough trunk supports crown whose complexity isn’t found elsewhere

The tree is not beautiful in the strictest sense
But its statue awe demands for it is immense
The tree has some sharp spines for defense 
Yet sheer wonder lies in the complexity of its boughs leaves and fruits packed dense 

The storm rages on and lightning hits the tree
But for it to be destroyed is not to be and what is more eerie
The fire that lightning spawned does no harm to the tree
Showing its majesty and mystery 

The traveler travels distance that is vast
To see the tree he must
But something beyond the tree when island one will past
There is something that also forever will last

The horizon and with it associated infinity
It is also awe inspiring thing of beauty
There are numbers greater then infinity
But horizon is Gods representation on earth and his true visage knows no boundary
