Moon too Far

treefan

I won’t make it to the moon
tonight
though I might
climb a tree part way –
no way
past clutching memories
rooted
in tangled perceptions
of where is sky
and why the moon
so loud
in call of winter’s fear
that a leaf
might forget to return.
that I will stand
a while and calm
the branches of her soul.
