- What Matters
I sit underneath an old evergreen tree,
Strong and tall-coated in a heavy moss.
I look out, vast horizon is all I see.
The tall trees shimmer, as if under gloss.
I grab my axe, and I begin to hack,
chopping away at the heavy evergreen.
I carry the weight of the woods on my back.
The forest waves to me, as I leave the scene.
I am now driving the great evergreen log
winding around the turns, I trust the river.
Riding the rapids, I exit the forest fog.
What Joy! To return, logs to deliver.
At home, I sheath my axe, done with the day.
Lying in bed, I know life is okay.
