Chapter 1

She stares with invisible eyes

carrying centuries of tales about mankind.

Her branches of 50 fingertips,

sweep the ground before they break.

The wind blows at her leaves

ushering them to the north

where the sun only comes out

a quarter of a day.

Back in the old days,

man carry plumped mammals on his back

and lay it gently before the tree

pleading for rain

to come upon his land

Time goes by,

the ground turns quiet and lonely

without a drop of soul

bringing gifts and praises

like the ones before them.

New men walk in

with metals in their hand,

their heavy booted shoes

ravish the ground as predators.

One night,

the tree weeps and floods the ground

carrying a message to the wind.

Her leaves turn to yellow

before they wither and float like feathers.

Soon after,

her invisible eyes retreat

and hide inside the trunk.

Fresh souls in old bodies

come to cajole the tree back to live

but she stays dormant in her might.

As they are sitting in silence,

the wind blows a pile of dead leaves

hiding the words carved on the ground,

"Seek for me where the ground is sacred

and untarnished by greed and desolation.

When the next moon is ripe, I will be reborn."
