Cuttings

Tree

ILLUSTRATION BY JOHN HINDERLITER

It is foolish
to let a young redwood
grow next to a house.
Even in this
one lifetime,
you will have to choose.
That great calm being,
this clutter of soup pans and books—
Already the first branch-tips brush at the window.
Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life.
