trees (1280x723)

I love trees
They do not judge

They stand still
They forgive
Imperfections
They do not try to fix

They sway
Branches waving
Leaves laughing
They do not lecture

They do not blame
Expect
Discourage
Abandon

I love watching trees
They stand still

They see
Their gaze pierces
This tired veil

Leaves shine and laugh
They shimmer in the sun
They know something

Branches extend
They make room
For a bird to land
With ease
They teach me

If I didn’t know better
I would spend my
Whole life watching them
