A branch of a tree.

If there were none free 

would you have left a Branch for me 

to climb back into the trees.

now we have learnt watching a man pray

 
seen the birds soar and the temples fall down 

and shadows cast time too wilderness.
On these days the leaves fall away 

showing us all ours faults 

are not the fault of that tree 

that stood before me for thousands of years.
