Trees


Two giants dressed in a foliated arbor
Sequestered on obverse shores of the harbor
Each eyes the other with ardent desire
But time melts away as branches reach higher
Eternally severed; two lovers by fate
Damned by a maker's inexplicable hate
But fate dissolves under a droplet of love
And love has no care for the makers above!

So one summer's night as milk drips on the bay
A rogue restless root races out and away
Trenching terra firma; reaching out in the blind
Til two roots enfold and become intertwined
Gripping under gravel, defying high tide
As one draws the other through the surf to his side

Lovers embrace as sparks spill from the sun
Two once apart grow together as one.
