A TREE’S JITTERBUG

Chlorophyll spiraling outward

The tree trunk monk’s inner dance –

An avalanche –

Buds, blossoms, green leaves, branches;

Hymns of limbs, thick sticks, a sprig of twigs

THE TREE’S CRESCENDO

Spring’s warmth

Welcome.

Lean back against the bark, the body and look

UP at the sky through the curtain of treetop accessories.

—-

When a tree limb grows crooked is it on a whim?

—-

Is the loot of my root worthwhile?
