Found Incidental Pertinence I

November 10, 2008

   S O   D I F F E R E N T           – Kay Ryan

A tree is lightly connected

to its blossums.

For a tree it is

a pleasant sensation

to be stripped

of what’s white and winsome.

If a big wind comes,

any nascent interest in fruit

scatters. This is so different

from humans, for whom

what is un-set matters

so oddly–as though

only what is lost held possibility.
