The Enchanted Tree


The Enchanted Tree

I leaned against your bark in search of comfort
Climbed to the very top and saw new horizons
I watched mesmerized as the sunshine dappled
In brilliant streaks through your ripened leaves

I listened as the wind swept untamed suddenly
Swaying your trunk ever so slightly beside me
I bruised easily on the sharp and dried-up twigs
Hurting until your sap flowed over, reassuringly

Your roots are firm; you belong in your orchard
I cannot take you where my travels may take me
But surely your branches will remain outstretched
When I return one day seeking enchantment again
