Short Answer: No.
Long Answer: Usually, I meditate with the wood, and in these meditations, I try to go to the place that the branch came from. Once there, I usually see a person standing where the tree was, and I'll have a nice chat with them, see what they'd like to become, and so on.
As described in the poem, I went to the place where the branch came from involuntarily, and what's worse, the tree did not, obviously, appear as a human. I took this as a gesture saying that the tree had no respect for me, because I, apparently, had no respect for it.
Initially, my interpretation of the faces was that they were people. But now I know that these were the faces of the lost souls of trees remorselessly harvested, their timeless faces caught in the expression they possessed at their deaths.
So yes, I usually do something along the lines described, but no, never like that time. As I said in the "Azrienoch and Alferian's wands" thread, I became very scared of it. Here's the story behind that; After completion, the wand antagonized and harrassed me constantly, forced me to carry it at all times. I would drift off in conversation, my own words being drowned out by the screams coming from my pocket. Soon afterwards, I chose to give it to Alferian, who's seemed to tame the beast, and enjoys having it around.
I've never experienced anything like that, so naturally, I do miss having it. But then I think of the incessant screaming of insults, and I know that we're both better off.
Thank you for your kind words, by the way.
