Romancing The Bark Of A Tree - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Romancing the bark of a tree.
Covering the many rings of its existence.
Touch one with a thankfulness to let it know,
You too have a skin others try to get under.
And just as mysterious as that tree touched,
One realizes those they know have not come that close.
And this activity will begin to establish an understanding,
One would never suspect would connect to humanity.
A comprehension long overdue would develop from it.
A stability of its patience many neglect to appreciate,
Becomes a sudden reminder of how one's breath is taken.
And what is need to supply the continuance of it!
