The forest calls
beckoning forth the heart within.
Come walk in my shadows
and feel the filtered shafts of light .
Come see beauty in burnt-out trees,
and as you gaze upon what others
I’ll bring you to your knees
and fill you
See beyond what lies in front of the eyes.
See within and find that where the lightning struck
and fire raged and violent tempest blew
eternal, unending, ceaseless life
As it does in me,
the lightning tree,
