the wind blows wild and filled with memory
pine branches litter the sun greened lawn
moisture tilts the clouds to wet the leaves
and i remember their dreams
tree dreams

i am them in ages gone
no humans
only insects and sea urchins
only that which belonged

what evolved came through their dreams
tree dreams

through the wind and rain
through time uncounted
through love unspoken
through green lush leaves
that remember when oxygen
was free
