It appeared that the tree held all the answers

tree held all the answers

on spacious plains

I observe with grace what people say and do

clear as the blue sky

on this open field

through the years I don’t seek

my leaves dance and wave

some happenings I witness make me drowsy

some were fun and simple

history and some

I held all the answers

seasons come and go

witnessing every drama and arguments

recording what they say

I like being me*
