Poetry

The October Tree; Stingrays

The October Tree

For days I have watched

it dress itself

arms braced overhead

to slip on layer

after layer

of bright green leaf

until winter’s skeleton

is quite hidden

underneath.

Stingrays

The camera looks up

at the surface of the sea

and a dozen stingrays

appear in formation

like a sudden sinister army

of stringless kites.
