That treetop.
That conifer treetop
points skyward
like a church spire
but more honest
and points higher.
Look a tree full in the bark,
see truth in its eyes.
It will not dissemble,
it stands
then it falls unremembered.
Against human teachings
on seeking the kingdom and earning freedom,
I would place the earth-rooted philosophy
and lofty serenity
of treedom.
