Inside I am


Inside I am a tree

I want to spring forth

And grow throughout the nine planes


I know that there are many lands at my feet

Frost lands and Tropical lands

And many will form in my branches

I spread shade far and wide


I filter the light


The hawk waits to hide herself in my branches

She is waiting for my journey upward

To become a canopy separating earth and sky


I wait


Inside I am tall and I will reach

My hands up and from them will

Spring leaves


Leaves of books, leaves of learning

Leaves to sing and rustle all the music

Of my birth


Inside I am a tree.
