I tree I met yesterday

Is it possible to look upon
the translucent green of a new spring leaf
against the contrast of a cold gray sky
and feel love?
Can you watch the branches intertwine
hundreds of arms frozen in dance,
ready to embrace
and feel joy?
Do you imagine the roots digging, searching
little periscopes on the lookout for life
and feel like you're exactly
the same way?
I watch as the branches bend and sway
in the wind
without breaking
without complaint
I pray I can do the same
