climbing trees

we are never too old
for trees
for the young delight we find
in climbing them
even now I judge maples
by their ascend-ability
and by the view
through the leaves
straddling long boughs
like leafy-maned mares
we ride through skies
of summer and youth
lean back and look high
let yourself fall
let yourself fly
but above all


  1. you made my heart sigh
    i look at trees the same way
    too long since i climbed

    This was wonderful. I was swinging yesterday looking around at all the trees and, just as you say, eyeing them for their ascendability! Time to take the next step. 🙂

    Thank You and Cheers!
