A   D R E A M

I am riding on a double-decker bus.

I see out of the window what I recognise as the
O L D E S T  
living tree in Finland.

It's an enormous old birch tree.

Shed bark is leaning up around it, like shells.

A wooden structure surrounds it to protect it like a shrine.  

I wanted to be up close with this being.

The pull to get off the bus and dump my luggage is like an ocean current.

I go to the tree.

Later in the dream Biden steps down from his elected presidency 

to make way for Kamala Harris to step in to be the next president of the USA.

Today I'm pulled to visit the old-growth tree on the way to the construction site, but I stumble across the old oak tree that - to my surprise - had now fallen.

It had been leaning all summer and it was time to finally let go all together in the autumn.

Time to fall.

Standing opposite, I notice a tree I had never seen before until now. Funny what you miss in your "backyard",

Aino Ackten park.

A tree with a huge opening in its trunk.

A womb tree.
