I walk among the giants
I crane my neck
to catch a glance
of nature’s stately kings

I stare and stare
I lay right down
I’m basking in their glory
They stretch above
from down here, it’s easy to see
that they are touching heaven

I wonder if the tops of trees
poke through the clouds of heaven
Perhaps the angles
care for them
and decorate
for Christmas

I lay among the giants
Nature’s stately kings
I watch them as they tower above
defining the sky
and heaven
