This Tree

Climbing up

Sturdy bark, sturdy branches.

Far up to where the birds reside.

Cannot wait until I get

To the highest point

Where I can see for

Miles and miles.

Nothing can return me

To the years where I

Was glued to the ground.

I am finally free

As I rest upon the

Plank of wood

Called oak or balsa

Not yet carved by man;

Only still in the same

Creation

That God

Allowed to be.

This tree

Allows me

To be who really want to be.

      I loved climbing trees! I must have been a tomboy, Wayne Barrett.
