“The stillness profound of the trees” recent musings of mine.

The stillness profound of the trees
Impassive and serene
Speaks to the spirits of those
Who watch and wait
Of the thin places
Twixt this world
And the kingdom eternal

For their foundations
Rooted in the very soil
Into the welcoming humus
Of this earth temporal do plunge
As the hearts of men themselves
To the things of this life
Rooted do remain

While the branches of the mighty trees
Ever heavenward thrust
For the eternal heavens to reach
Connecting this world and the next
So also the hearts and souls
Of the children of this life
Upon this mortal coil dwelling
Do reach for the things everlasting
As their souls for eternity endlessly yearn
