What the Bonsai Tree Sees

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



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.
