BECOMING A TREE

I wish to become an ancient maple like the grande dames that stand like wise sentinels along Hapenny Road in Peacham Vermont. If this wish is impossible, I want to sink deep inside an opened trunk, squeeze next to an exposed maple heart or merge along a downed limb, mingling myself within this natural kinship. I recognize the knurls, and rough-hewn skin, in my own hands and face. I want to be inside them, paint them, and transform into a tree.
