288/365 - Tree...

I'll Be A Tree

Here I will stay
Standing - feet
Quite still - so
Still I refuse to
Accept that the
Juices of the
Earth that push
Upward - upward
Sky high-ward up
Through oh so
Dense rings of
Years will not
Find a way into
Me if only I stay
Still long enough…
Push down hard
Enough for teeny
Tiny worms of
Tunnels to grow
into my soles and
My soul will fill so
Fully with that life
Flow that comes
And goes and it
Comes again and
I will live for eons
Standing right here
Forever longer -
Ever taller in time
I will be a tree -
That will be me…

…graft…

Dedicated to those souls that plant their soles in a dream.
