Tree Soul

Signs found in grains

of the wood

polished and stained

in human hands

as though they created

the beauty in nature.

Rough and unsanded

natural beauty

lies deeper within

protected by outer layers,

shielded by thick-wooded skin.

Bark painted with moss

and lichen,

decorated with fungi shelves,

wraps ’round the hidden

rings of maturity

as though putting on

a tough exterior can keep

safe the inner soul.
