Image for the poem Dad

Dad's Mesquite

 
golden light filtered through
feathery green leaves.

gnarled rough brown bark reaches toward cotton clouds.
breeze gently sways nest on highest branch.

jet-black grackle perched on drooping mistletoe
advising, perhaps admonishing.

tree’s penumbra shields brightly colored hammock,
cradle for snoring hairless primate.
