  • I feel you, tree.
    I feel your desire for communion with me.
    For moments we yearn simultaneously.
    You, with your secret life underground
    and me with mine inside.
    Branches reaching towards me,
    nature's willing bride.

    jean claude's beautiful piece "Returning to One's Roots" " brought to mind this small poem I wrote almost 25 years ago.
    Trees saved my life one time. No lie.
