Dichotomy/nurse log

tree stump

pausing    the sound of waves sighing, birds humming the tune of spring in winter

i walk seeing the world of the park in poetry

carved bare, a fallen tree is alternately caressed and whipped by the water where it sits

as i sit the late january sun lays its blanket on one side of my face,

the cool wind gently breathing on the other


one day that moss will break down the rock under its clinging feet

the tree bridge will sink into the earth, a nurse log

for future cedars
