Ask the Trees

In Divinely Inspired, Nature by RobertaLeave a Comment

A squirrel hangs upside down in the Holly tree, dangled by nimble toes.
Reaching, reaching, reaching for fat berries.
Tree and air and ground take notice of the ask.
I crane my neck to see which one of these-
squirrel toes, branch, berry – will let go the answer.
