Day 121

The Presence of Trees

by Michael S. Glaser

I have always felt the living presence

of trees

the forest that calls to me as deeply

as I breathe,

as though the woods were marrow of my bone

as though
I myself were tree, a breathing, reaching

arc of the larger canopy
beside a brook bubbling to foam

like the one

deep in these woods,

that calls

that whispers home
