  • I'm barely contained within
    the usual confines of tameness
    I hold fast for sanity's sake
    until a magnificent being
    from a time before mine
    so stark in her nakedness
    a majesty of trunk and branch
    bereft of her leafy crown
    yet demanding her due
    I dare take her measure
    1,2,3....10 times around
    I ask her leave mindful
    that I'm in a wild place
