Do you know trees travel?
Trees chatter & play & trees witness all we do & laugh
& sometimes

Our first friends in the garden
Our mentors, our teachers

Every tree has its story
Every tree has its language
Every tree speaks of an eternal cycle of seasons change & sameness

Every tree speaks of our time in the garden
The good times
The great times
The times that still are when we look ...

Every tree speaks of:

Lean on me
Stand next to me
Recall my love for you, our love for each other ...

As children we climbed trees
We let them carry us with branches for arms
Then we came down as adults and stopped dreaming
And slowly
Began to die.

I walked among trees today & I smiled & I wept & I heard them & was consoled
We shared stories of a time when magic was reality & our reality
Was hell.
