A Gathering of Trees
by Jennifer Dunlop

I survey you, my audience

            a gathering of trees

rows of umber, tawny sentinels

            welcoming, waiting

I have no answers


Trees do not loathe

            but neither do they love

prevailing stately and silent


We attempt communication

            awkward, ill-timed overtures

but when you touch me

it calms this strident tumult


my skin’s longing


your delicious pressure

            expansive bliss


Trees leave such stumbling gestures to us


love, the great experiment

            a human failure


but also,

the sweetest meaning

            the confused
