Tree Poems

Moving in the Breeze

I'm not the first to see
that the trees' bare branches
are like slender arms —

but I see this
as if for the first time 
now.

*******

Anchor

One old, thick trunk
among the more recent
and more delicate ...

from its solid width
the lowest boughs
extend like wings —

strong wings
of guardian angels.

The roots are spreading as far
as the tips of the topmost leaves.
