The trees once looked up upon with awe and reverence
For their character and kindness
Watching over the world below
Mutual respect in assurance
A Peace in knowing that there existence is our own
But that was then and this is now
A world turned upside down
Gazing up from the floor below calculating potentials for the market place
Ripped from their homes so they may rest quietly in our own
Gentle giants cut down half their size, taught how to kneel
Shipped off to Design school, an education in wood shop awaits
Seeing one of the trees again, it’s been so long, just a chop off the old block really
Shorter then I remembered, but quiet comfortable
Love the new color and flow, seems a tad expensive though, maybe next time.
