Tree Door — An Image

I followed that winged and scintillating procession through the wood,

“Tree Door” — C.Birde, 6/16,through the wood,

careful of my distance.

While I struggled

to keep my footsteps

to myself,

they seemed to

drift over the earth,

unfettered.

When I made my way

around that ancient

tree,

they had vanished

through a door

in its trunk.

Next Solstice, I will not lose them. I will follow to that other place.

  1. I find the fact that there are so many massive, old trees that manage to survive and persist and grow in spite of such hollowing-out fascinating, even admirable. The idea that these could be doors has always appealed to me. No Narnian closets for me — I’ll walk through trees. 😉
