Afternoon Ponderance

Afternoon Ponderance

Greetings to you, white pine,
Framed by my window
Against the clear blue.
With undulating branches
I see you wave.
Birds fly away
From the unseen core
Where squirrels leap
Amid hidden nests –
A lone opossum swings
All the more at home.

– Kalpita Lawless.
