Shedding this human skin

I am the poet 
who shed his
human skin
to reveal
the worm  
who crawled out 
of its cave
in the pouring 
rain to gain 
fresh perspective;
the tree 
trunk & root
who felt the 
wet earth,
limbs signing  
skyward messages,
& inspiring  
an unspoken

    I love the “unspoken co-existence” between man and nature. Your poem is a fun way to recognize our bond.
