at cliff's edge
















if they could talk
what would they say?
these rugged
dwarf trees
on the coastline of
county clare

night
after wintry night
they cling
enduring
arctic north wind and
saltwater spray
i wonder what they would say
about their harsh existence

and as i sit here, eating my lunch
i'm amazed by what a surprising thing
is cauliflower mixed with
imagining

  1. hahaha-you had me there- was trying to figure out when you went to county clare and the images brought to mind the trees and shrubs on Mt Washington in NH- then all of a sudden I am sitting at your kitchen table with you- so clever!
