a mystical tree

There’s this mystical tree
somewhere (I’m not sure where)
I see it vaguely in my dreams
and hear the rustle of its thoughts

It tells me many stories
some are dark, some with hope
all of them flow endlessly
through the different windows of its stem

but its door stays closed
and under the branches it bears
there’s hidden something
it doesn’t want to tell

and even the lanterns
throwing glimmer around
are not strong and light enough
to enlighten its shadow beneath

I tried to shush it
but it keeps telling me new tales
so I wonder and ponder which is the real one
(If any)
because there’s something it tries to tell
