Sylvan Wisdom

refreshing and warm
these raindrops that fall
drifting as faery wings resting
upon a maze of greenery

where pastel flowers bloom and
emerald shoots dance upon the
earth their dance of life
underneath the sodden leaves

where little birds run for cover
while the king watches from his throne
as everything keeps changing
yet remains the same

the old oak tree
has stood through
the test of Gods time...
he knows he stands alone

after the rain has quenched
the thirst of the earth
bees and butterflies flit and
flutter silently through his branches

a lone squirrel caresses his bark
chirping eagerly as he runs down
sniffing about at the new scents
brought forth in a burst of life

just as all of nature
whispers her loving tune
wild and free in
an orbiting forest

the old oak tree still stands
through many seasons
the chill of the winter, the heat of the summer
he knows he stands alone...
