Our Tree Home... (Hesse inspired)

Our Tree Home

are the permanent
the eternal
which we forget
in our hastiness..
our identity lost
the objects of life
stand forth claiming
special reverence..
until once more 
the tree experience
states our permanence 
in which our lives
display in passing..
the silent tree
brings us home and
reintroduces ourself
to ourself...

“When we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.”
~Hermann Hesse
