The Time Warrior
By  Agnieszka Rawa

Inspiration piece

In the Sierras out West
A giant still stands
From times prehistoric
With strong massing limbs
Of rust-reddish bark
And scars in its armor
From fires and foes

Meticulously clothed
In soft braided leaves
And sweet cedar scent
Its curved tangled branches
Lovingly wave
To creatures below
While centuries flow

Sequoia so patient
Structure divine
King of the forest
You fight against time
While lives come and go
You outlive us all
But are lonely at heart
