trees on hillside in the wind

The wind is fierce

Planted in the ground

among the swaying

my branches reach to sky

and racing clouds

and falling rain

With sisters

and brothers

dancing ecstasy and reverence

hair and leaf

fingers and branches

leaning back

and forward

side to side

circling round


in sync

The wet on my face

not rain

but tears

wild laughter

into the sky

Music raging on
