  • I don't dream much that I remember,
    or don't remember much of dreams.
    Mostly let them come and go like clouds.

    I woke with a dream of my sister telling a story;
    a tree being moved, great ball of roots exposed, her voice in the background
    “A tree makes an island,
    an island makes a tree.”

    Just a short and passing observation.

    I woke wondering about where the tree was going, who would dig it up and all the earth clinging to its roots.
