A Minute

A Minute

From Writing Notebook 2021, published in 2022.

Not necessary to tell me
this old tree is withering
Lady I know
it’s not a nice neighborhood
but at least try
a taste of the shade here on the sidewalk
watch the thin leaves flutter in this slight breeze
Rest a minute
here with us
Just a minute more.

  1. I like the fortitude of this tree, standing strong while the street around it goes through changes, and rewarding those who also stay a while with some shade.
