fall meditation

trees stand as they did in my childhood
home: tall... bending for me
our stance an interchange

I named them as I did the sky before me
worshipping them as constancy
and also transformation 

now I look to sky and trees in imagining
knowing them from memory
loving them as prophecy

my patience both placental and personal 
a foundation sturdy with roots
from another century
