I saw this tree in the distance while I was travelling and it inspired me to write this poem..

The Solitary Tree..

I am a solitary tree
Standing straight
Standing free
In the vastness of nothing else around me

The sun is slowly setting behind me
And the sky is filled
Like a painting adorned and on show
With the colours of fire and a magnificent glow

The lonely hill is my home
And my roots are in the ground
They run deep into mother earths crown

Her crown is her dirt
Which nourishes me so
And when the rains come
They help me to grow

I am a solitary tree
I stand here proud
I have arms of branches
A trunk and a bough

Under my shade
And over the years
I have heard sounds of children laughing and playing
Telling stories of make believe
But now they have grown and moved away
And the memory of me
Is beginning to fade

I am a solitary tree
But I still stand here
With much glee
For I have lived
Nearly a century...
