“Trees indeed have hearts.”
― Henry David Thoreau
Does a tree dream in vivid colors
as it sleeps in the cloistered forest
with fertile earth on gnarled roots
while it sways in the promising breeze.
And as it views the kaleidoscope world
from every trembling greening leaf
does it look at the intricate designs
as rampant nature repeating itself
in the shape of each blooming flower
or does it believe each is rare and unique
with all their beautiful intrinsic power
