The Tree That Looked Like A Thinking Sage

At first, we thought
that the tree was submerged
in its thoughts.

As we near its beginning
an ending dawned on us-
There was no tree, not anymore.
The gnarled bark encased an overlay of years.

“Please move the mirror away from my face.”
My father said, but he had been imagining
a looking glass everywhere he looked.
