I miss the mighty tree
Who once stood tall here
Who now loves on here
From deep under the ground
Still so alive
Still so giving of itself
I wonder how many 
Have forgotten 
Don’t notice
Walk quickly by
The place where he once was
Not seeing 
The freckles and speckles
Not believing 
In the faery who dance here
Who laugh here
When no one is peeking 
Like me
They wait for me to go away
Flee, I hear their whispers say
Delicate wings and tiny things
Tower here
Are enough here
In this moment 
In this place
By private invitation only
To honor the mighty tree
Who loves on
From deep beneath 
The rootful earthy sea
