a forest...

behold;
a forest,
telling time,
with hidden away rings...

before my eye,
under the blue sky,
a seedling,
yet three feet tall...

a couple feet away,
one shading the day,
over sixty feet tall,
making the little one small...

the time and space in between,
few have seen,
watered through time,
a parable written rhyme...

one beginning its life,
the other having seen the strife,
weathering each storm,
looking down upon the newborn...

one without many is but a tree,
many of the few set the eye free,
seeing the changing of each season,
giving to others hope and reason...
