ii; mythos of a mondream

By Feral

It was easy to be wounded by the trees;
to dream of life as a cathedral oak
and root myself in the quiet, misting stillness.

Heartwood pulses a gentle tattoo
in rhythm with thunder,
in intimacy with a becoming.

The sun warm on my leaves, soil cool on my roots;
a monkess divining life through mycorrhizae and
photosynthesizing a pantheon:

Blushing at the sun,
growing by moonlight

marvelling at the nature of bones.

    Longing for the stately serenity of the long-lived trees, while we envy them, and they perhaps do us in return. While a million stomata breathe in a voiceless susurration. Cheers Feral! - Dan
