Watching at a Tree

Picture by Armastaja

When I look at a tree

It gives me feelings of belonging
Being part of the vast Universe
Majesty, admiration, ancient security

Grandiose beauty
Its leaves already changing
Eternal maturity, cycle of life

I get closer
The perspective of its branches
Envelope me with a fatherly embrace
Far away, I can see the sky

Green multiple fingers moving with the wind
Designing shadows on the grass

Rough skin, hard and wrinkled
Like an elephant
Like a God of wisdom

Myth and life
Represented into a single tree

If I could stay under its shadow
If I could climb and sleep between its arms
If I could become a tree
And stay like that
