As tall as trees do these beings stand But firmly rooted in arid soils Hardly able to sustain Anything that resembles life As no light shines through their crowns And no winds rustle their leaves They let loose their seeds To more hopeful grounds But never again, they know Will they themselves move As lost as ships in starless oceans Are these beings, navigating Through the blackness, anchorless As though on a mission Of any consequence Their anchors have not been lost, No – they have never existed Not because they are not needed, No – But because there are no harbours In which to cast them
