Poem -

The tree

The tree

The tree sits
All alone in the distance
Swaying only as the wind blows
It listens
As the birds sing
And the people converse

The tree stands
When everyone else
Has gone to rest
Sitting awake
And watching
As the hours tick by

The tree lives
When nobody else truly manages
Because we're all distracted
And that's one advantage
Of being on its own

The tree breathes
The fresh air
Not caught up in the drama
Of this world
Not really a care

The tree sits
And only sways
As the wind blows
Because alas
It is only a tree
That represents beauty
And contrasts the scene rolling out
Behind

The tree
Is nothing more
Than intelligent design
Something to think about in greater detail
If only we could make some time

And that's one advantage
Of being on its own

Yet the tree is connected, through its root system, to a million others...trees, plants, water sources, the very earth itself.
As we all are...

Lovely poem.
