30 March – Dear oak tree

Dear Oak tree,
is this rock for me
to sit at your feet and hear
for a little spell
all the tales you can tell,
having stood here a hundred years?

Dear Oak tree,
oh, to wait and be
while the world rushes by on its way.
I would emulate you,
learn to grow not do –
to slow down and just breathe in the day.

Dear oak tree,
if only you and me
could properly and lengthily converse,
I would grow so wise,
seeing life through your eyes,
studying your lessons, chapter and verse.
