a poem from iguanas in the snow!

Here's a poem from Francisco Alarcon's book, as promised! (And the photos below are from our summer trip to Pender Island--nominated by me to the list of most gorgeous places on earth!)

pender trees


Ancestors of Tomorrow

children are
the blooming
branches of trees

one day their seeds
will become
the roots

of other trees
bearing their own
blooming branches
