5 Ways to Look at a Tree

1
Gnarly column
Of weathered time
Silently holding the weight of the universe

2
Swaying slender arms with golden
Sun speckled, fluttering
Whispers that tell every story
From where this wind has blown

3
Standing majestic for decades until
Cut short
Unheard whimpers seeping
Like a trickle of water
From the heart of our world

4
In the patch of shade by the corner of the yard
I sat on summer afternoons
An icy glass of lemonade
Gazing up to my mother’s canopy

5
The moon peeking through
Bony black branches
Like a cold silver coin casts shivering
Shadows on the frozen ground
