(Ajo – Colossal tree endemic to the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica – Caryocar costarricense)

Shadows fade in the half-light
Jungle moves around black tower of light
Pillar of twisted wood so tall
So still, still moving all

I fade to half-light
Fade from half-life into living night
Tower of fizzing light
‘I’ sparks the foresight that sees this wonder
Look up, Ajo!

Still night, still life, momentary silence
But all moves the same
Stable tablet shaking new words
Into being, as it trembles

Tell the story, read the story
Feel the story
Breathe the tower.
Dark Ajo, breathe dark tower
Breathe dark night, dark life of jungle half-light
