Crave to Learn the Language of Trees. {Poem}

trees forest sun

Crave to learn
the language of trees

listen to them speak
until you understand
what they have to say
and they will tell you
in rustles and sways
how they dance
vibrant in the heat
their lifeblood overflowing
and bursting into green

Crave to learn
the language of trees
listen to them speak
until you understand
what they have to say
and they will tell you
how they stand
courageous in the cold
with their branches
bare and grand
and when their sap
runs slow
let them whisper
secrets to your soul

Crave to learn
the language of trees
listen to them speak
until you understand
what they have to say
and they can tell you
about acceptance
and living without lamenting
and facing the changes of each day
while remaining arrayed in grace
listen to the trees
as they speak
