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.
