When Trees Meet - Oct. 18, 2022

when two trees

touch for the first time

I see leaves hugging

and hands clasping


as if watching each other

separate for so long

spurs a flurry

of meet and greets


so longing to connect

they interlock branches

like green-skinned siblings

fostered too long apart


stroll down an old street

under this arch of relationships

it is caring

protective shade


lonely cats

never cry

in the hollow

of that contentment
