I am a marked tree

whose bark has been scared

with fires and claws to claim

and ravens and nests to relieve homelessness

for nature and the small

 

I am a honey bee

with effort and labor

as men of three, strong and motivated

to collect for my queen

make honey for all but me

 

And as the leaves shift

among the wind and rain and sudden cold

the time tells the bee and tree, within me

to bare past with pride and take time for the sweet

and work for balance and harmony
