Bodhi Tree – Author Mark Andrew Heathcote

I sat beneath a huge tree

Its shape and size shaded me

As if I were its seedling

In search of nourishment

As if I were the sapling in search of light

As if I were, somehow, its own penultimate circle

Spiraling out of control left to fulfil its last rites

Entombed, enclosed embalmed in eternal night

Waiting for it to make space for me.

Look child at the leaf of a Bodhi tree

Look at its veins, it to be another tree

Yes, I sat beneath a Bodhi tree

As does it somewhere, shaded sits inside of me

Yes, just another seedling in search of nourishment.
