trees 1

Today at five the trees are offering something,
not just the singletons outside the frame: stand-outs
that end in pale patches of magnolia or flaunt
their bright mosaic bark. These trees touch always
on perfection. I mean the ones which pack the inside
of the bush like different kinds of stuffing (kapok
and feather, brands of rubber chip); each tree
delivering its take on nature's blend of the distinct
and multiple, to make a hillside catching
at her positives: repeat, diversify, diversify, repeat.
