Two Joyful Trees in Cheyenne Canyon State Park

Trees, proud standing people
stretching fingertips to the sky, reaching, praying
glorious attention, breathing light.

timeless confidence
bending and firm
rooted chorus line
dancing with the moon, the wind, the clouds
framing bursts of stars

tender rugged celebration

absorbing and releasing life
each holy branch
holding the power of the Universe.
