Twin Trees

We are a pair
Twin trees at night
Meaningful and bright
I prefer to confine myself
To the roots that hold us upright

Imagine sitting in a concert
Of nature listening to a
Symphony of owls
Your favorite rustling of wings
An orchestra resounding
In the weeds and we
Are so moved by natures music
That our trunks shiver
As they sing bark rattle and ring

Now if just to bring you here
So I can comb through
All your branches
Take care of you a bit
Careful not to split
Your heart in two
Your wood is delicate
To tug at your limbs
Would be a treat

Often in our forest
I think about the arrival of
A Sasquatch parting
Through our woodland
Stepping over boulders
Like a giant strolling deep into
Our dreamland

Would your offshoots bend down
To rescue me from the lumberjacks
Timber! Called out scanning the ground
Axing us down
I want to illustrate that
You know me by sound
That you see me completely
Before the cold gentrified
World comes around
Making bonfires of us
Blazing in ovens
Mulching and chipping
Us up innocently enough

Still never knowing
We’re madly in love
