Palm Tree

Palm tree trunk

My favorite is the palm tree’s woven trunk
smoothly grooved beneath my hands

As if carefully planed by a divine carpenter
the rough bark nestles against my cheek

The sweet decay of coconuts counterpoints
dropping bounty without end

I too, seek to become a tree
and layer years upon me
