Song To The Tree Seedling

song to the tree seedling

fledgling changeling constance continuing

keep close your seasons leafling

deep knotted taproot

full grain heart

let loose burl song to electrified wind

patterning through limbs

scattering remnants of yesterday’s motions

moons over moons i love to watch you grow

at trunk base, passage performs


encompassed rituals and rites

wearing experience memory as skin

recognized as respected wisdom preserved
