Thursday, August 18th, 1983

Trees stand, three dimensional testimony
to life’s pressing itself into the inanimate
like dye poured into water
their fingers reach to celebrate the difference

These days I can meditate their waving
as the lifeless wind moves them
feel their forms as if I
were both tree and wind

Fractal explosions cast
on the canvas of years.
