Water, Love

I am the tree

in the black and white photo

reaching, leaning, straining

sideways in the desert

toward an unseen source

of water, love.


I am the trunk

bending, growing, twisting

sideways as my branches

long to reach that which

nourishes.


I am the roots

growing deep but

one-sided

seeking fertile soil,

water, love.


I am the tree

in the black and white photo

reaching, leaning, straining

sideways in the desert

toward an unseen source

wanting water, love.
