Sitting in a tree house
surrounded by nothing but leaves
I am suspended by the handiwork of man
and the cooperation of Mother Nature.
A rare experience
as joyful as it is inspiring
it makes one pause
shouldn’t this be how we live
supported and uplifted by the
work of our own hands.
Much seems to be lost in today’s world
staying here and enjoying this experience
even while the thought of being suspended
is ever present on my mind.
