Our Tree

Then

untamed,

riotous unruly red maple

recklessly abandoned.

Supreme, unchallenged, with gaudy intentions,

a feast of sensual delights, if somewhat overbearing,

rapturously shedding scarlet.

Action

Climber, knife, saw, care full cuts delimiting shape,

trim beauty, revealing clandestine symmetry.

Now

Delightful delicate revelation

adorned softly in crystal white.

Winter’s stark perfection,

surreptitiously awaiting sprigs,

with time’s

ever hopeful renewal.
