Tree Of Magashi

I have walked for a mile 
in her footsteps.

offers a cooling balm
for the heat of my frustrations.
Leaning against that solidness gives pause,
to stop and drink in
the shade of her wisdom.

And I 
marvel at the juxtaposition
of her willowy to my thick;
her smooth to my rough;
my prickly attitude to her leafy logic.

How she 
lends a new perspective on
an idea ripening, dropping and withering;
a heart left in a mulch pile or
a dangerous flicker of doubt to be snuffed out.

Mirth crinkles in the corners of her eyes
as she too 
carries faded battle gashes
where love has loped off
a once extended branch.

Her grove collectively offers comfort
for fruit born of loins,
falling and nestling
within rolling distance.

No more soothing a sound can be heard,
than rootsy laughter of womenfolk
of trees of magashi.
