POEM

You say the wind moves in like water
and goes out across a sea of branches,
is leaning in to whisper,
and no one detects that you are near,
because you are (and have always been)
so good at making yourself small and quiet.
To stay here, hidden
would that be too much to ask for?
Sky, is all
the downward pull,
the simple force
of evergreen and darkness;
rain, so you could hide the whole deep
deep inside
the words
Let fall.
