Wonder-ings of Nature in Winter

_
I’ve watched the behavior of many winters
And the demeanor of many trees in winters
_
I’ve wondered if these beauties experience separation anxiety
When the leave collector goes door post to door post
_
I’ve wondered if the meandering shape of its branches are the tracks of its night worries
If it lacks sleep thinking of when next it’ll be clothed
_
Today I’m sitting in mutual patience with them
Waiting to see what the Spring brings.
