The Woman in The Tree
Feet were planted beneath the ground
calves invisible inside the wood
bark grew shiny where the feminine body
prepared to expose a hint of thigh.
There it was a shapely ass
and the line of her spine rose up and
surrendered again into the tree
shoulders neck head concealed.
Until the arms were freed
yielding to the organic design
hands splintered into a multitude of
fingers budding green into the blue sky.
