Imagine what they see…
Standing tall as towers with their roots reaching far into the Earth gaining and audience with the demons while it’s spires reach far into the heavens tickling the feet of angels.
All that is, falls upon the very sites of these neutral giants. They are there to shade us in our victories and to shelter us in our defeats. They are there to keep life in perspective when we see it as dull and dreary, a simple wavering of their beauty and the changing of their pigment can capture our attention in a hazy blur for hours of endless awe.
Even when punished by the lashings of Mother Nature herself, these towering guardians do their best to stay rooted and when one falls, the Earth cries and its legacy remains in the wake of disaster.
It is humans, who cause the most ruination to these masters of history. For all they see and stand witness to comes in jeopardy for the mere greed of man. Their lands are raped from existence and steam rolled into industrialization and commercialization. Forced as slaves without a choice, these wonders succumb to the torture of imperfection.
But some, some have it within their hearts as steadily as the human heartbeats, to acknowledge these wonders and to share in the partaking of laboring for the birth of new ones.
Take heed and let us all remember, these towering friends are our allies and never shall we strike up against them, for without them, our breath of life is whisked away in the breeze of time.
These towering sages of endless dreams and wisdom bring life to the world.
