The oak tree’s dream

The oak tree's dream

Screenshot 2021-01-25 at 10.02.15They moved up into the trees

where the air was cleaner.

They dreamed of sky and flight.

Their mouths hardened into beaks

and they pecked the hard bark

seeking the true story of what they had lost

and why.

They grew wings

feathered and fine

but never learned to fly.

Yet how they sang.

Oh how they sang
