sleep II

tree

a comfortable bed

made up of

all the loose ends

left untied

they are bundled together

into a soft nest

in which my heart finds

peace and rest.

and roots

from oaks uprooted

i make my bed in them

and in the shelter

of trees still upright.

the mix of uprooted

and rooted

is only really

a healthy garden.
