Reading Tree Rings

When we as old ghosts
complain about moisture
content in
the wind blown mist
in an alien tongue
and demand
A little more respect
from  green ghosts

To the flower
please 
note that the pine tree
and the rock face
are just  hard to read
books
and probably well
worth
reading.

very interesting piece. Either loaded with messages, or else you've become Alice. ;)

i was just comparing tree rings and rock stratum geology to the wisdom of elderly people and deceased writers with the flower as youth.
I may have not made it clear as i could have but it was fun to write this way :)
