LISTENER

I was talking to a tree
Last evening
Leaves hung on every word
It was so silent
deeply rooted
to the common ground
I could hold
No expectations
It felt exactly like
you were listening

(Art by
Arthur Rackham’s pioneering 1917
illustrations for Brother’s Grimm
Fairy tales.
Brain Pickings e-journal carried the illustration
for an article)
