The trees seem to speak as they
wave in the wind. The branches
are broken apart yet they stand.
Can they feel emotions as you and I?
Do they suffer from heartache, and
will they break down and cry?
Leaves seem to whisper that they
know more than they say. Can they
too keep secrets locked far away?
The trees lend an ear to all of
my woes. Rambling and crying,
for sure you know how that goes…
Lost for a moment in peaceful therapy.
Do the trees feel emotion,
such as empathy for me? ©
