Limb of a dead tree resembling a headless
human figure, EspaƱa, Manila 2007

I am the ghost that walks
from a forest before;
I am the conscience of man
sleeping in its core.

I am the memory
from the distant past;
lost among the throng,
living in the dust.

I came from Paradise lost,
orphaned by the first sin;
the hands that cared for me
can't now be seen.

I long for a heaven, too,
a gift of being good and true,
but if heaven is only for man,
I did serve him through.

But I am a ghost now.
Would man join me for a walk
to tell the world the story
of a once mighty oak tree? ~
