The tree was warm and friendly
leaning on the swampy lake…
positioning her back on him
feeling such warmth, feeling very safe.
He told her of the roots he had
down inside the earth connecting every one
the advantage of being there so strong…
feeling the lake, the colours, the breeze and the storm.
His trunk being only his body,
his soul inside … his quest never ending
laughing his belly laughter…
showing her his wisdom and understanding.
He was knowing, wise and welcoming,
Luna shared some things too with her new friend…
seemingly getting somewhere,
where words were not needed and love was essential.
When she awoke from the experience, shooting back
like an arrow, the conscious mind returned,
along the river her unconscious had been taken,
leaving her almost stricken and awaken.
