A symbol

Tree, a symbol
The tree, a symbol
a place of gathering 
a sacred, shaded place 

The Linden tree
symbol of Europe
and its sacred medicines

and so many trees 
all over the world 
a forest 

where people come

All those who have come to share 
enlightment and doubt 
wisdom, insights, experience 
friendship beyond borders

Grounded in the same earth
breathing the same air 

Sharing the good word
for a better understanding 
for a better world
