Those Blue Olive Trees

At night, with the moon shining through, I see blue olive trees all around.

They are dancing, moving slowly towards the shine.

A pathway opens in the middle, yet again for us to reach.

We can hear a white noise, as the wind builds up between the leaves.

It’s cold tonight, but there is a calling and we can make a fire to warm us all.

We need to stay and stand together, as the olive trees have done for centuries.

We need to take care of each other, as the olives grow.

Love will prevail in the extra virgin  oil.
