Ancient Towers of Strength
   keep me
         in sacred space.
From roots running deep,
   searching for sustenance below,
to tops rising out of view,
I imagine you are 1,000 feet tall.
   I am protected.
      I am in awe.
   hold me
         in gentle sway.
From branches reaching out,
   grasping for heaven’s sun,
to sap coursing through your veins,
I imagine you are 1,000 years old.
   I am nurtured.
      I am grateful.
