Be gentle
with those
who disagree,
for the wish
of most is not
to wish at all;
most would
be happy just to
squeeze into
a hollow sycamore
and close their eyes
for the rest of their lives

I love that this poem whispered itself to me. And that it is shaped like pine tree.

You always compose these pieces that I read several times.

I'm very fond of the last two lines in particular. It's a large sentiment in a tiny poem. I don't know that it's shaped like a pine tree, though; it looks a little one-sided.

Thank you, Wendy, for your comments. Welcome.

Kato really likes pine trees. That's probably why she responded the way she did. And they do "whisper" if you listen.
