- Reassurance - or why you should go hug a tree when the world is crazy

The wind was cold but the sun was high
I wrapped my arms around a willow tree
I wrapped my arms around a century
Its bark was warm against my face
The tree stood steady against my weight
I thought of time and tides and graying hairs
I thought of men long dead who had once stood here
I thought of tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrows
As dirt I'll be, in a hundred years
But on this ground, time slows enough
- to remember and be remembered
