Ode to Georgia’s Tree by Donna Fleetwood

Ode to Georgia’s Tree

To know a tree best,
lean your bones and skin
against the sleek round firmness
of burnished charcoal bark.

Touch limbs that reach sky
Twined twins grow from center cleft
sprouting green sisters and cousins
leaflet babies birthed by wood.

See the soft animals who
make their hidden home here,
crawling over nubs, chattering in leaves
leaving small bits of fur and feather.
