      I Was a Great Oak Once

      I Was a Great Oak Once


      I was a great Oak once
      rooted deep in the good earth
      a pillar of society,
      or perhaps a giant Sequoia,
      a viridescent sentinel, listening
      to small quakes in the silence,
      I am much less now,
      fodder and
      kindling wood,
      little branches
      of broken tomes,
      a weary traveler
      with moss on my back
      yearning for home,
      brightly burning
      in a moment
      between the North Wind
      and the Sun.
