Solitary Tree

  • Friday, August 1, 2014

She stood mighty in the wood

As majestic as the Goddess Artemis

The emeralds on her boughs

Wavering in the wind

Branches stretch like arms

Trying to reach the sky

She is lonely

For there is no one around

To talk

Except the Wind,

Who hisses putdowns in her ear

She has stood alone

For a thousand years

She will stand alone

For a thousand more.
