Who Was This Tree Made For?

Fiammetta Falchi

A black and white photo of a large tree growing out of an old stone courtyard.

A gate,

made from stone and time.

A door,

opening to eternal stories.

A narrow passageway,

leading to the chambers of imagination.

What is this feeling?

This sound that I perceive?

This smell that permeates the air?

All is here and everywhere.

Now and before, and someday

encased in the layers of time and space

like this tree, embracing

 everybody's wishes, hopes, dreams, and fears 

with its wide-open arms of nature and sorrow,

channeling energies to the sky, 

to the cosmic infinite.
