Tree Teaching

autumn misty morning trail

I am a tower of green set afire,

pulling heaven’s sun to soil.

When I drop my leaves

my stillness is unadorned.

I lay bare my winter prayers that you may remember.

I do this in trust.

I am no less a tree when my colourful alchemy ends,

no less living with purpose.
