What the Bonsai Tree Sees

Sitting on the sill
Beside the staircase.
Glimpsing moments as we scurry by.
What does the Bonsai tree see?

Sometimes one who is hurried
A flash of energy,
No time to stop.

Sometimes one so serious
Preoccupied,
Occupied,
And post-occupied.
An expert in taking stock.

And in those magical moments
However few and far between
Our little Bonsai tree sees
The gaze of attentive eyes.

And when the Bonsai sees we are
Attuning while pruning
The Bonsai feels truly alive.
