Ghostwriter

Ghosts ask “Does it trouble you that

you haven’t done more with this marvelous

life God gave you?”  “No,” I reply.

“And it doesn’t trouble me about all

the sadness and loss God gave me.”

What the tree leaves behind

after many autumns, winters and final fall

is rings – a dendrochronology of  historical context,

environmental conditions, and possible future issues.

Earlywood,  latewood, drought year, wet year, diseases –

no soul, but a body outliving life.
