Although it may stand alone
a tree travels vicariously

Through the wind
which whispers tales
from other leaves it has tickled

Through the rain
dropping notes from the rivers, seas, and skies
it has traversed

Even a tree which stands alone in place
still knows the world better

than a mouse who scurries about it
looking for cheese
