Nature's mark
left my initials
of praise
on the bark of an Elm
amazing me
who wrote wore this tribute
after an urban reading
at the art club
by the response
of many years
near the local vineyard
as an unexpected breeze
curved its branches back
on the earth affectionately
by a windy day before spring
as we are feeding the birds
feeling the old vulnerability
which made me an impression
in part to share
a stranger's ability in vocal words
to put my signature
on the dark wood
dubbed into an expression
that spoke to our neighborhood.
