Leaves I believe
branches too
sometimes even trunks

What comes from earth
returns to earth
rises to air again

Flesh falls from flesh
cleaves to dirt
weaves the worry worm

Meat bags of heat
eat and mate and weep
cheat the dark in sleep

I believe in leaves
branches too
they live and grow sans thought

The squirrel is from Lady’s winter 2015 solstice reading at the nature center. As the reading finished, we saw a bald eagle fly over and all the small meat life scattered. Eagle soared in circles for maybe 4 minutes. This is my second flying eagle sighting, and both were this year.
