this tree is a ballerina
how much further will you bend
how much longer will you pretend
that you can't break
and can suffer an eternity instead

this tree's arms droop low to the ground
stunning flexibility
shows a disheartening ability
to ignore when the wind whips through
and tears leaves from its bruised skin

this tree contorts its limbs into unnatural positions
and holds itself steady in the midst of the storm
beautiful posture
gorgeous technique
it's barely holding on

oh ballerina-tree
what happens when you topple over
when the gusts blow you over
when all your leaves are fallen
when all your arms are skewed

let go, ballerina
let your branches fall to the ground
let yourself be planted anew
as a seed

then grow again, ballerina
and we can weather this storm
you and me
