Teaser:

The Pine Tree

I see a pine tree,
a lofty pine tree,
set high into the sky;
whenever I see it,
I remember an arrow,
fixed into the ground.
Grand and magnificent
against the skyline:
seen by everyone,
admired by all.
And I think,
might I be like it;
like it in its grandeur,
like it in its magnificence.
Soon may come a time,
when I may not remember it,
when I will never be the same.
