Sideways Squirrel

She stood by the brook


lifted empty hands to heaven…

praised Yah

for sunshine and good earth


as cars cut paths in winds

beneath her…

swam and swarmed

through 2 lane asphalt currents

belching smoke.

She noticed

a dragon without mercy

flashing, smashing

towards her

monstrously tall

with claws as sharp as knives.

He did not notice her shade

as his tires

tore through her

or how her leaves followed him

as he sped away.


“When a tree is cut down, its scream goes from one end of the world to the other, yet no sound is heard.”

Rabbi Eliezar
