Conversation With Trees

Conversations with Trees


I’m dancing with your ghost again. 

A flash of aquamarine in your eyes

that isn’t there. 

I’m listening to old songs again, 

the lyrics pumping through every vein.


A timid rabbit trots an uncertain path.

A nose full of curiosity

and legs poised for danger. 

A real delight amongst the dreams 

that never bloomed. 


I’m walking home alone again,

with visions of you fading,

amongst ancient trees.
