I hear you whisper gently,
‘Be still, breath me in, believe’.
I hear you rustle restlessly,
‘Be still, notice me, awaken’.
I feel your bark magnetically,
‘Be still, connect with me, re-energise’.
I hug your trunk desperately,
‘Be strong, rely on me, trust’.
I telepathically call up to your green canopy,
Trust what? I shout.
Believe what? I scream.
Awaken to what? I question.
Re-energise how? I ask.
Trust what? I ponder.
Then I surrender in your shade knowing you hold the answers.
