Standing Tall

trees are
standing tall
saplings under a low, grey sky
water
drips
sliding,
down the budding leaf learning seasons

they are
standing time
sentinels for the past and future
child
playing
now,
stroking a solid trunk that remembers

trees are
standing tall
bent gentlemen
struggling
against
storms,
they stand, stand sheltering their progeny
