Sunday Morning Poetry


We are trees

our roots
network
with the roots
of other trees
our branches
grow
with desire
of touching
other branches

~ Francisco X. Alarcón

Alarcón is a poet, editor, and critic who writes in both English and Spanish. His most recent publication, Body in Flames/ Cuerpo en Ilamas, is a bilingual collection of poems published in 1990.

Love the poem and love that photo! The older I get the more I'm taken with bare branches . . .
