climbed a hundred times.

i believe kids
have special feelings for trees,
especially the ones in their own yard,
the ones they grew up with,
the ones they’ve climbed
a hundred times.

they know the strongest branches,
where the short cuts are,
where their foot will slip,
and where it might get stuck.

they know that special place,
where the sky
and the sunlight
and the birds
meet to play.

kids don’t climb
their special tree to go somewhere,

they climb it to dream.
