The Nudity of Trees

Noticed, driving back to work
from a therapist appointment
How the truck floats, light
On the road passing dark bare
Mid-fall trees, between traffic
lanes, standing strikingly
proud in the noon day bright
shining sun, A denuded maple,
leafless elm, two green pine
Don’t look dead, or dejected
for all of foliage’s failings
But strong, tall and defiant
despite their apparent nudity.
