Interview with a Tree

Taking note of the moss

on the side of the tree

my namesake conducted an interview

how wise the tree came to be

The tree is

regal and strong

having survived many obstacles

its life is long

Through the window of a millennium

experiences of war and peace

humanities struggles

the wonder has never ceased

Taking notes

wanting to know lessons learned

the tree detailed

what humanity has earned

Created from dust

blessed with light

yet somehow managing

to live in strife

The tree sighed

each generation has a choice

to live in light or dark

everyone has a voice

My namesake smiled

a grin upon her face

excited about the future

and the gift of grace
