The Tree in Winter

Sun in Gemini

Borderlands Tree reduced

The tree in Winter

Its life-trail etched against the sky

reveals what we cannot

Who stand below and try

To see within

How we became this shape

This pattern in the now

And asking how

Did we result in this?

Our branching tale of history

Concealed in layered thoughts

And wrapped in finery

—-

We would

Be dead and left to rot

So naked in the winter wind

Yet she is not
