ask the trees

IMG_1975.jpg

ask the trees
if they are any more
without the sun
or without the air
or without the water

ask the water
who it would be
without the clouds
and without the conifers

say those things:
how could you ask us
this question?

at the end, say they
we are who we are
because we are each other

and this connection
millennia in a mirror,
the conference of sun,
trees, moon, and cloud wandering
is beyond
explanation

beautiful, you say.
beautiful.
