My Tree

In time’s window
each day
a leaf on a branch
unfurls.
I watch it never
seeing it move but each
day it takes up more
space
on the tree.
And somehow I am
in the roots of the tree
in its leaves
in its pollinating bees
which have yet to hatch.

I am here
in this green time
new
each day, just
one leaf
on this precious
old tree.


After a twenty year silence, a staggering inspiration in the fall of 2008 compelled Sandy Day to write again. Sandy’s verse/fiction concordance will be published in the Spring of 2011.

Sandy lives in Toronto, Canada where she is always looking for ways to pay the piper!
