The Tree Is An Ash (Fraxinus)

My tree,
the tree in the middle of my back yard,
possessed by an assertive squirrel and her(?) quiet partner--.
The tree that might mark a "thin place"
through which i might sometime see another world--
Is an ash.

A "world tree" that connects heaven and earth,
assembly place of the gods,
the substance from which the Norse Adam was formed.,
and useful also for making bows and baseball bats.
No wonder it seems to have a sacred quality!
My tree.
