sticks

- Wednesday, June 8, 2011

splinter and branch,
weaving sharp angles,
scatter and shatter
smooth and solid
sky.
twigs thin as a finger:
snap snap snap;
trunks thick as all:
unmovable…
immutable…
innumerable.
the roots are so deep
and remember soil,
old as life,
young as death.
a year is but a day:
spring morning,
summer day,
autumn evening,
winter night…
oh, mighty old one
reaching for the sky,
in the wind, creak and
squeak your tales to me.
