The Tree on the Cliff

In a land found next to the sea

There grows a tree strong and green

Its roots have burrowed through the stone

On the cliff high above the crashing waves

And feed off of the nutrients of this land.

Here the tree stands

And here it will stay

Until the land crashes into the sea

Leaving nothing but the sky and sun.


Birds fly freely through the sky

Singing their praise to the bright blue sky.

The sun darkens behind the tree

And begins to disappear behind the vast horizon.

The tree that once stood strong and green

Is now dark against the bright light

Of the ongoing sunset.

The birds fly away

And they sleep the night away

While the tree stands strong in the shadows

Awaiting the moment they reawaken

And return to fly about its branches.
