Green Leaves

July 19, 2014 at 8:39 am (Dani Clark, Poetry)

All things lean at you, said the poet
but did he ever look at a young tree
outside the window of his apartment’s kitchen
linoleum underfoot and tamp down a sob
because she had sprouted light green leaves
seemingly overnight
alone she did this
she who kept me company every morning at 6 am
sometimes with a star perched
between the fork of her empty branches
whereas I
I had to wait.

– Dani Clark
