Scion
by Anne Casey

 

high on a branch

on a soaring crown

in a grove of trees between

sunbeam starburst leaves

that twists and turns

but goes nowhere

 

kookaburras canoodling

far above the middle of

everything that is all

cicadas calling to prayer

the crash of a branch

in the out there somewhere

 

a memory infused in cells

falling to earth

immersed engorged dispersed

echo of all that is everything

cycling through dirt to rise

to a branch on a soaring crown

 

in a grove of trees somewhere

in the

out

there
