A Picture on Shoreline

I love this one …
see how you take on
the language of the tree –
the branch you grasp
above a shoulder height;
your other arm crooked with knotted fist
against your hip.

You reach … all angled –
framed irregular geometry.

What says the tree …
cliff-slid and beach bleached
as he is?
