beautiful blooming blossom botanical

.

From a seed

dropped by a crow

at the bottom of a rockery

.

it rises tall

and sturdy now

.

with Fibonacci spirals

and a halo of gold.

.

I wonder

if passersby see

the scintillating glow –

.

or just a wistful shadow

nodding across their path.

A tree knows.

It knows the animal of time

that climbs up its trunk,

wrinkling hours into bark.

It knows that rain

falls between suns

and that baby birds

fly their nests

and return full of eggs.

A tree knows

that endings

swallow their own tails

to become tight brown nuggets

falling in circles,

flavoring earth with the future.

A tree knows.

And what it knows best

is to give.
