The Tree in the Grandparent’s Backyard

The tree stands firm

its eyes can not see

but experience gentle, sometimes 

furious rain and wind.


The tree, from its branches,

hangs wind chimes 

and child’s swing, 

tolerant of surroundings.



Generous tree, filtering 

colors, spreading shade

over the garden, bench

next to the trunk.


The grandparents sit

under the tree to read

or chat or quiet their hearts

whispering sunset.
