Returning


First time since the accident—
the tree, half-standing,
seems to hold

in its snap-jagged trunk
the moments of just after,
though it's been months.

We spot flowers,
               white blossoms,

size of a thumb nail,
       stems a few inches tall.

Oh to be small enough
to follow white flowers
like old-fashioned street lamps

lighting the village
after dark.
