always

beyond the quiet of leaf drip
as night rain gathers
along veins deep grooved
to spill from leaves
new touched
by the awakening day,

beyond the calls of birds
summoning the sun,

beyond the noiseless sound
of barefeet on damp paths
in the morning,

a tree waits
rooted in the silence
at the edge of the world.
