In the brush

of the forest

pain comes out as a sigh

in answer to a question that falls as a tear

The trees whisper to me


I have no ears

and I must listen

I have no mouth

and I must scream

I have no feet

and I must run

I have no skin

and I must feel

I have no vision

…..and yet I see……

all the wood for the trees
