the benevolence (plays)

Inspired by the phrase ‘The play of shine and shade on the trees as the supple boughs wag’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

by day I watch
the play of shine
and shade

oak tree twins
that dominate my seasons

how tall is tall

how wide

enough
to be a new atmosphere
when standing
beneath
the leaves

enough to be called home
by the trillers
and warblers
that fill each day

enough
and supple
to reach

to reach toward
the sky

supple boughs and branches
wag
swaying to a song
sung in gentled whispers
by
the benevolence

the breeze

they are
the instrument
for all the day
to play
