branches reaching, stretching

budding

golden sap running through my veins

new

spring

green

bursting from my fingertips

joy               life               fragrance

happy peace in my roots

cool water bringing laughter

sun breeze in my hair

other branches entwining

homily

with mine

blue sky bits

filling all my spaces

fork cradling a place

for friends to simply be

held

in all the ways

they never

were
