this tree

 

always in the country
always in the middle of a fallow field
buzzards circling
 

the wound beneath its roots is a passage
a rabbit hole a secret door
a drink in a jar
 

this tree
 

its flowers are finished
its fruit is still green
hurry is forgotten
 

a handful of sand thrown across the river
 

not even the wind
stirs
