The Tree Outside My Window by Michael Channing

The Tree Outside My Window

by Michael Channing

if i stand close enough
it fills the sky
the slivers of blue
between the branches
widen in the winter
disappear
entirely
in the spring

i prefer my tree
dressed in april
near enough
to make
the faraway
go away

It's Scary Out There
