noble trees

trees come alive

when they die,

or they become

much more useful

when they’re dead;

whether they’re

providing a home

for small birds

and squirrels

in the wilds or

providing wood

for us to build

our own homes,

they’ve answered

a higher calling,

no longer only

providing shade.
