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
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?
