Inner Space

What a gift!

To stand within a tree and breathe its musky depths.

Lean against worn bark hewn out by countless rings

Over years and decades and monarchies.

Feel the becalmed air within the depths-

Sharing spaces with myriad lives, unseen in crevices.

Playing at being The Green Man.

Peering out

Still and watching.

Amused at how fleeting fast the world turns,

Navigating people’s roots.
