Climbing the Tree

Climbing a tree

Looking for a strong lower branch

To jump

Jump

Jump

For a very good grab

Grabbing with arms

Wrapped around the strong branch

Must hurry 

Arms are not as strong as legs

And

Soft back swing of legs

Pull in stomach 

Throw 

Throw those long legs up

And pull

Grab the branch 

Legs and arms

In the Tree now

Now

Now

Now ready

To learn the Tree

To meet

To feel each other 

To be able to see her hidden places

Look 

Look 

Look up

Climb 

Climb to the next big branch

Feel your body stretch

And hold onto the tree

Feel your knowingness in your 

Climb

Stay

You are higher 

Look

Look around 

All around 

Look down

Look up

Look how far out the branches reach

Look up

Is there another strong branch?

Wait

Think

Consider 

Consider the strength of the branch you are on

One more

Just one more

Stretching leg over to a strong branch 

Just a few inches higher 

But

Still 

Higher 

Arrive

Stay

Heart pounding 

So high

Tree?

I’m a bit afraid 

Are you okay with me here

Breathe

Look

Look

Enough

Time to climb down 

It’s an amazing quick scuttle 

Hang from lowest branch and drop

Separate from Tree

A Bond
