List your objectives,

One two three.

Tick them all, perhaps.

But branches grow from

nodes unseen, wrought in

Secret, deep within the trunk;

Roots find water and,

Without reflection on Luck

Or Risk, drink deep, sending

High and varied growth

To greet wind and find sun

To worry is to predict shoots

On a sapling

No tree can be planned,

No sprout withdrawn,

Only cropped.

Two times me:

One here with cake I didn’t want

Already consumed,

One there, in the future

Maybe, or now, if I let her,

A better her.


This cafe’s by the the lake-

For longer than a cake

And a cup of lemonade

I’ve sat and thought,

Watching people pass,

Making what they can

Of squirrels in the rain-

Nowhere to go but round the lake,

Past swans and reeds
