POEMS: “Within this tree”

Within this tree

Within this tree

another tree

inhabits the same body;

within this stone

another stone rests,

its many shades of grey

the same,

its identical

surface and weight.

And within my body,

another body,

whose history, waiting,

sings: there is no other body,

it sings,

there is no other world.

Jane Hirshfield
