Tree Arch

Above:  Part of the Second Draft of the Poem

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A tree in Americus woods grows upward

then back to the ground, forming an arch

of wood and bark unbroken–not severed–

through which one might even march.

+++++

Why did the tree grow this way?

It is a good question, I propose.

Pondering such things, I do say,

regarding how Mother Nature goes,

+++++

is a helpful spiritual exercise,

for to look around and pay attention–

really to open one’s eyes–

is to notice what God has done.
