Tree Speak

A pious soul good
Left shrine of wood
At my foot

Instant affinity
For this divinity
Wood to wood

We communed
Spirits attuned
To revere I severe

My foliage
Leaf by leaf
Dew laden

God pleased
Happy appeased
My girth increased

Devout flocked
Others mocked
Boons shocked

Shrine enlarged
Tree chopped
God crept out

Embracing hugging
Wood to wood
Souls fused solely

Tree joyous
Holy pious
progressed

I was in my yard and thought that the tree was a living being. We take trees for granted.
We don’t believe they are as much alive as we are.
