Three Trees

The first is for shade
when the sun beats down.

The second is for shelter
when the rains beat down.

The third is for sanctuary
when the gods beat down.

[Insert Title Here]

Only trees take root,
Squeezing earth of all
Its minerals,

Clutching on tight
So as not to fall into space
Digging down, remembering.

A Saipan hat, a purple corona
Of their leaves, shreds through
Autumn fog.

If they mourn, it is for
Abandoned nests, because now
The birds are refugees.
