Winter ice trees

The January Tree

Stripped bare of Summer meaning

Leaving only wood to sway

I wait, endure, while others pass

Along this rocky way

Your feet are fast and fluid

While mine are mired in earth

Your thoughts too fast to capture

While mine are simpler truth

Come spring I will awaken

Then will you stop again?

To see the youngest green of life

Drink from its mountain stream
