Tall Tree Leans

Tall tree leans downhill
towards the water
the other trees which crowded him out
denied him the sun
are all gone
long since fallen away
but he leans still
too late
the leaves & branches will grow
on the upper side
but the tree will never straighten up
he's grown too long in the shade
of the others
too long at this angle
too long searching for the sun
to feel it on his face
now that he can
(JC 7/22/12)
