Banyan Tree


The Banyan tree breathes

absorbing the sky

and dropping it onto the forest floor

making holes of light

Slowly roots descend from high branches

and open the earth

Gratitude feels good

The sky's or the tree's?

Gratitude feels good

to me

  1. This reminds me of the grounds at Iolani Palace in Honolulu, used to have lunch under the banyans there in another life... (about 30 years ago :)
