A Tree By The River

there's something
about a tree...

lie beneath one
on your back
looking up.

with a good tree,
you could almost get 
lost in the branches.


there's something
about a river...

flowing from 
somewhere there 
to way past here.

something about
the moving water,
demands reverence.


i like the darkness
of the branches
against a background
as light as this.

and think that maybe
this is a tree whose
branches i'd get lost in.
