The Lives of Trees (poem) 

Whatever you do,
don’t waste your time
struggling with issues
about “faith” and
whether “the Other” is real
or not.

Do not worrry about
your own existence--
whether you are palpable
or just a mirage
floating in a mirror.

When the worthies
begin debating such things inside
the temple,
do not bow and listen.
Run outside,
rattle the windows,
storm the doors,
let the music of light
come in.

Better still,
turn them out
into the sun,
point their solemn faces
toward the trees
blooming in fall’s
swelling luminosity,
let them see how
is a leaf
falling gracefully
into its new incarnation,
how magestic the limbs
in their bright emerging configurations.
