LIFE AS A TREE

LIFE AS A TREE

A tree stays rooted in the same place, 
its shadow forestalls the passing of time
It takes what's needed from the earth
and explores existence as a tree. 

What secrets fed the roots from teddered soil  
A naked force, we cannot see, a mystery unknown 
that trees and human beings are seldom shown.

Only that we grow in timely stages and  
And whether it is just a tree or me,
it will always seem to be
a question never fully answered.

C.A.K.
