    Just because I like Trees

    As light shines to star sublimes, my paradigm
    loses all sense overwhelmed to my decline
    in this soft grass, plush with my ash as I pass
    the plant of everlasting hash and smoke paths.
    No one else is around, this can't last the wrath
    of my lungs inhaling the stash the mother crafts
    in unison with the motion of earth I start to laugh
    at my imaginary self, overshadowing my ass.

    Sigh, the breath I exhale is so refined
    contacting the birds and the bees in pantomime
    motionless on their respective platforms high
    in the sky where nothing ever comes down nigh.
    Right? what a sight for red eyes to plight
    in a world of rules, my gravity is contrite 
    in light of the fools, my levity in respite
    till time speeds up and I don't care to write.

    Hello green leafed tree of varied coloring seas
    of white rings released in reprieve of the ease
    dissipating in the wind, who loves to achieve
    acrobatic like twirls as you peace.
    Take this slow moment to rest within thee
    as the cloud leaves the room it seeks to be
    recognized by new pockets of chi, like me
    and you, that seek to partake in the love of trees.

    The solitude of their speechless grace stands alone or unified of the forest stead. A quality not left unsaid. Thank you a reminder that a tree is life-giving unto life.

    Powerful words as always. Glad to see you writing again.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
