Today the trees danced for me.
They saw that I was lonely,
So they swayed and shook.
They whispered to me on the wind,
Knowing that I’d look.
Leafy fingers hypnotised me,
Made me stare.
Tempting me to come to them,
To float to them on windswept air.
I want to learn to be like them,
To let life move me yet be still,
To stand so stalwart yet bend at will.
I want to feel connected to everything that lives,
While rooted in my isolation as long as I exist.
