Today I was sitting in the lap of a tree
watching the world go by:
I saw a girl reach up and try to pluck a star
from the sky with her fingers,
as though gently nipping a bud.
I saw a prowling cat masquerading
as a gnarled root eyeing up
the darting squirrels and the birds.
I saw a giant woman falling from a waterfall,
she was the waterfall, arching back, arms outstretched
to dangle her fingertips in the lake.
