She wished to be
A lissome tree
A home

For leaves
For flowers
To grow on

Her wish was made true
Now she sits under the sun
Taking in its beautiful rays
Finally becoming one
With this universe

A Tree’s Memory

She remembered a sky glowing red

Noises in her head

Figures that screamed

Others that whispered

And some that bled

She remembered joyful wonder

Cries of surrender

Stars that wept

Nights when she slept

On a warm earth

Nothing else beneath

No sheets no shields

She remembered before she was this magnificent tree

She was a woman

Wondering what she’ll be

When this earth turns to dust
