Love and Trees

Young love
looking at their cellphones
a force stronger than love
the whole world in my pocket

Old love
families and friends
day and night
tall trees standing strong

and beautiful
like love
solidified as warm wood
scent of flowers in the air

woodpecker at work
in an unexpected place
is that what love is?
scent of flowers, strong as wood

durable as stone
volatile as a volcano
never twice the same
like a flight of cranes
