The Tree of Sky
by Jennifer Dunlop

All the important things catch

in trees. Rain strokes, breath. Meteors

turning on new twigs. Twisted

tips of an oak pin

fog on a surging moon.


I glimpse stars climb down the tree

of sky, cast lacy light, curious

about earth. Fascinated by weighty

ground, cartwheeling

through gravity’s haze.


I have spent much of my life

turning pages of forests, assimilating

plotlines of stars. Taking in

a vista assembling exhalations

the piercings of life opening

us, as trees are,

to the sky.
