Even Trees

Pass in the end.

Even you, old friend

Though you seemed at times

To challenge this law.

But no, you too

Now finally replaced

By space.

  1. So grateful for these words today as I am experiencing the truth of even the trees… while reading your poem I noticed a shift from feeling disoriented and lost at the sight of this empty space to the awe and gratitude that anything is even here at all. Thank you !

  2. You put it very beautifully, yes….the gift of simply being at all is so gentle and easily overlooked….just like the tree in this poem; a tree I’d known forever, suddenly not there.
