Tree Of Life

Outside my window

a pine tree grows – way station,

highway, haven, home 

of shy tree flowers who fade

into bark and branch;

colorful standouts, flapping

wings; high-flying squirrels,

dancing on outstretched limbs. One

large tree which they all

share. I greet them with a bow,

thank them for showing us how.
