No more bare trees

light-trees

there are no more bare trees
at this time of the year
first shoots of spring
have blossomed
into mature flowers
leaves have sprung
on the branches
at places that
seemed dead
but life came to
abide in them
instead

there are no more bare trees
it’s all full of
lush
and the juices of life
flow through the city
the roots
from the trees
intertwine underneath
as if the green wood
has found home
in your city and mine

there are no more bare trees
just a memory of loss
an inkling that
these leaves one day too
will fall
but now
in the corner of your heart
nurture this place
where trees are
full of life
