Trees beyond the window pane

Poetry by | March 15, 2015

Trees beyond the window pane
a retreat caught between the threshold
of gentle tension between time and void
a conversation amongst creatures
older than us
younger than us
or the same age
Barely touching but deeply felt
Silent conversation
Peeping and teasing
The wind tickles, they flutter
Minuet flipping, flapping
Then they stop
