 Trust

The trees on the cliffs
are teaching us everything.
They cannot fathom what it is
that makes us cling
and cower.They lean out,
standing on their toes,
as if light were the truer gravity

as if the pull of earth
were some old superstition
we might rise above

as if there were
some wider watchfulness

as if we could spin ourselves wings
just as easily as falling.
