8th April, 2016 (dancing trees)

by Brendan Strong

Shake
Shake it
Do that thing
Like you mean it, like
Something means something.

The straightest tree
Gets chopped down first
Eventually
We’ll all be burst
Wide open. See
The colours. First
They shine from somewhere
Unseen, leading the eye
Back to the source
Initially invisible
But always there
Always ready
To shake.
