Still Life


There is still life in

this old tree

no matter what

they say


A rotted log

upon the ground

my bark is

turning gray


Once I was strong

withstood the wind

until there came

a day


When I became

too old to stand

now on the ground

I lay


Inside my trunk

are rings that show

my growth

my ripe old age


While I am down

still life is found

just in

a different way.

This rings true across the spectrum of life.
