Arboreal Memories



That lonesome tree
once stood
like a sentinel

its vibrant roots
silently burgeoning
in receptive soil

And now
like an old man
grieving his lost youth

tree limbs
hang limply
toward the parched earth

A single drop of sunlit
sap evokes arboreal
memories

when seed first sown
by timeworn winds
took root

and blossomed
into life's
uncertainties
