Those eyes on you

Dark and green

Deeply engraved on your bark

Sees all, yet so silent

You look out on to the lush green plain

Little creatures with tails in question marks scurry all over your green hair

Then they invade your limbs and all that is spread before you with abandon

Yet you lovingly caress them with the cool breeze that blows through your hair

Your presence is strong and unwavering

Standing up to assailants

Stopping the wind that dares to break the rules

Protecting scurrying animals, winged creatures and humans alike

Your essence is selfless and beautiful

Nourishing undeserving humans

So refreshing, tall and fruitful

You are life’s nurturer in the most purest form

Happy Earth day
