I'd love to be friends! Just hit me up in the comments!

climbing a tree

March 18, 2021


his bark is rough, cool
against my fingertips
scraped by slivers
hand over hand, limb by limb
up, higher, above
I reach to touch the sky with my tongue.

someone's hung a streamer
by a branch
achingly pink
wind-blown trash, a prayer, a gift?
only the tree and they know
I leave it there.

a leaf grants my forehead a mossy kiss
water over stones, river-laugh
birdsong in one ear, out the other, returned
voices, car motors reduced to a low hum
I can't hear anything but my
slow breaths in rhythm
with my heartbeats.

    Great metaphor!!! Like it a lot :) Don't know how to phrase this - I want it to come across as friendly and not creepy! - but wanna be friends? You seem really cool, and an amazing writer too!

    "I reach to touch the sky with my tongue." - This line is fantastic. And wow! The detail and description is engrossing! It can be so gratifying to dislocate yourself from the city and feel nature in your hands once in a while. Sadly, I live in an apartment so no nature here except for a few potted house plants. :/
    Re: Thank you so much for your comment on my piece! It's always heartening to receive one of your thoughtful and sweet comments! <3
