I see

close up photo of grass, focussed in the photo, with a large pine tree in the distance

I lie with the grass,
giant trees afar—snugly
fit into my eyes.

In the moment

photo of the sun streaming through leafy branches of a tree, as taken from the grass below it

Lying on lush grass
watch the sun streaming through trees—
what a privilege.


photo of a tall palm tree towering over other trees around it, in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens

Giraffe of trees, palm,
vantage to rest of the world,
and its destruction.
