The Tree Gods
Tall trees think your answers up into the skies
Where clouds form full and thunderous above your wise leaves
And the living libraries of your sturdy trunks; with deep roots
Reaching far down into the psyche of the earth and all that is.
Synaptic charges ricochet from earth to sky through your every fibre
Uniting head and heart, heavens and earth in an explosion of creative force
That spirals out as far as the soul can reach, and illumines the landscapes
Of the inner and outer worlds. A moment of pure clarity, of enlightenment;
Its image imposed upon the retina of time, existence and being;
Of body and heart and mind;
Indelible, irrefutable and enduring.
