the squared circle

from
the top of
your
mind grows
a tree.
the
leaves are
falling
and you tell
me
it’s october.
i
dream further
wondering about
age
v.s
youth –
what is the
difference?
and i
tell you
it’s mind
over
body,
activity
v.s
activation.
your hair grows
into
the tree
and
your clothes
in
autumn,
hang out on the
branches
to dry in
cool
air.
i
lay at the base
of your
tree
realizing
i am
sleeping
by your feet.
it is an
earthy-earthly
existence.
rich
soil and
soft moss –
i
reach back
up
and explore
further inwards
to
your mind,
and the dream
tree
sets down
a
swing –
we are there
together
comfortable in
our bodies.
found in our
minds,
age is lost in
unity
– there is no v.s
the
battle is over
