Naked Roots

IMG_1354

I see all your roots
Exposed
like knobby knees
As you cling alone
to that cliff made of rock

As you define
impossible with silence
and grace unashamed
of your nakedness
clean of the fire that
must have burnt off
all your leaves

unafraid
unlike me
as they look through you
out of their picture
they think you’re
already dead

Today I see you
I pointed you out to
my daughter too
we’ll sit with you
today
we’re in no hurry.
