Arched Tree   Leave a comment

Just north of Ben Burton Park,

next to a beaten path, and

beside the Middle Oconee River,

a group of trees grows from a common root system.

Some grow straight up,

toward the sky.

One grows along the ground,

down the river bank,

to drink from the river.

Another tree to the earth is bound,

forming an arch

then growing up from the surface again.

As I rank

trees in order of interest to me,

those two latter trees,

more than some others I have seen,

fascinate me more keenly.

So to them I want to march

day after day,

from their asymmetry

spiritually to sup.
