Tree: An Exceptional Inception



standing on the shoulders

of your elder wood

where the sides curve into faces

long, disfigured yet noble


your arms embrace outwardly

not afraid to be broken,

because they are inseparable


your veiny growth pumps through

the stump, a heartbeat so subtle

like a tambourine against the clouds


your skin is so thick, yet you are so open

learning from the sun

feeding yourself with its rays of nourishment

you will keep rising, like a living legacy.
