Cemetery Tree Symmetry
Age Group: Adult
I press my hand;
with fleshy palm and tips
that fill craggy recesses
of the evergreen's width.
We surge with energy-
a communication between
the tree and me.
Opium and old granite,
you surround me with a
veil of needles and cones.
Larger than nine feet,
it will do fine.
"She is not dead,
Sip the water, trickle
a stream down her base,
and light two candles
that flutter in the wind.
Author's Notes: This is a little thing I wrote after taking a walk in the cemetery. A spring shower had me taking refuge within the branches of an evergreen. The quote is one that I read on the tombstone of a small grave.
