Featured Poet: Sharon Robinson

Today was Arbor Day, so I thought I’d share this gem from Sharon Lia Robinson.

Skagit Valley Forest

 

tonight
light and silent
the tree seemed to say
come close

the tree saying be,
be together in your soul
your center yourself

newly planted and old
the trees sing and say
we see you
feel yourself
know you

we are here too
in the breath of our earth
we hear you
we know you too, your reaching
we know you too, your reaching.
