Into The Light (An Ode To A Mahogony Tree) - Poem by William Lindenmuth

Like a still life at dawn
Before the winds appear
The sunlight touches softly
Caressing one so dear
Your graceful limbs reach out
To touch the distant stars
Sunlight caresses each glistening leaf
Reaching from afar
As the day progresses
You stand tall in the light
Casting a gentle shadow
Separating day from night
You sway and dance to the music
On a light and gentle breeze
Hypnotic in your movement
You put the mind at ease
In the softness of early summer
True colors will appear
The essence of who you are
Colors rich and clear
As we paint the world with color
In the shortening of our days
You reach out even further
To absorb golden rays
In the autumn of a life time
Colors glow then fall away
But gentle limbs and sturdy trunk
Remain for all the day
as the winter passes
Your colors are reborn
gentle branches reaching out
to touch the light at dawn
another day of living
dancing on a gentle breeze
we stop and we think about
what puts our minds at ease
