Those Trees And Me

I don’t know how long

those trees have stood together.

They were here long before I arrived.

Neither do I know the many 

comings and goings they’ve seen 

nor how much they’ve weathered.

 I have been witness to

 the community of creatures

who, like myself,

have found shelter upon

and beneath their welcoming limbs.

Though there’s much I do not know,

I know enough to offer thanks.
