say hello to the tree

It's old and wise.
Over a hundred years old I believe.
It was here before our house was built.
If you look carefully you will see his eyes.
He's observed several generations of children grow up.
Felt their hands and feet climbing his branches.
That;s why he's smiling.
He likes to have kids around.
And squirrels and birds and all the trillions
of little creatures that live on him. In him. Off him.

Listen. Listen carefully and you can hear him breath.
I swear he can talk to.
But then you must know the language of nature.
In modern societies very few people speak it.
I regret I don't.
