The wind is the tree's very breath.
Grand branches undulate
Back and forth across a cloudless sky.
Leaves flutter and shine like diamonds,
As the tree continues its dance.

The unseen presence of the wind--
The great motivator
Of the upward and downward movement
Of branch and leaf.

The tree looks like some immense creature--
Breathing, expanding,
As the wind blows through it.
Standing there it is a massive monument
To another presence, AN ETERNAL PRESENCE--
One that guides wind and earth.
