Morning Prediction 

One benefit of having such tall trees

is that they function like the nimble tar

who scuttled up the mast to peer a bit

beyond the near horizons from the deck.

They catch the morning sun the way they catch

the first few drops of rain-their upper limbs

before the ones below. In this they are

meek cousins of the prophets who described,

not just invisible realities,

but also what those unseen hands would do.

This morning, with their growing tips, they say

it will be fair and warm for us today.
