You will not hurt me    if you take
a piece or two of my bark to write on
I will look the other way    and not cry
if you want to swipe some berries
to pound into an aromatic pulp of raw ink
Surely a bird residing in my branches
will be gracious enough to drop a feather
to fashion your writing implement
When the words have slowed to a trickle
promise you will return    rest    sheltered 
against my trunk    and read to me
Tell me of things I do not know
Show me the world beyond the slip of sky
that covers me     I will help you always
if you will only speak to me

    Trees. They emanate a spirituality unique to them. Each one telling a different story. Loved your poem.

    This is so good, I loved the feel of it. If you have a chance read my poem Wisdom Tree, I think you would appreciate it. I have yet to find a poem of yours that I have not connected with. You are an exceptional writer. Hugs Rick.
