A poem. Not sort of.
Special emphasis on the last line eh?

Who knew
a twisted old tree trunk
washed up on the beach
would become
for some
a fallen star

Brings to mind
a few tired lines
You don't know
what you've got
till it's gone
One man's trash
is another man's treasure

I hope it finds
a long life
of appreciation
where it is safe from stormy weather

And let's be thankfull
that our lives
are so peaceful
that we have time to mourn
the death of a log.
