The Hollow Tree


The trunk of a tree hollowed by a lightning blast.
Picture that bolt. Take its metal colour.
Use it to shade the colour of your dream.
What shape is your dream? It concentrates
all of its energy in the front of your brain.
Earth clings to your fingers. Its red clay.
Other colours: pale green tinged blue
come rising out of the earth.
The yellow white brain of a cauliflower
crystals of rain the silver blade returns
again and again to black hollow
and the wonder of the green
shoots returning.
