no longer

no longer distracted
by the over growth of green leaves,
grasses of the fields, and showy flowers
the bark shines forth with beauty.
textures, cracks, crannies covered
with a slight bit of mossy softness.
gleaming with highlights only an
autumn sunset can paint.

the fallen leaves skirting the trunk
ruffling applause to the mighty tree
thankful for a season spent in union
of spirit and sense.  each feeding the
other in a continual cycle .. forever.
sap to limb to leaf to compost ...
separate no longer
