Solar Path Tree Ring

Ronald Johnson
The Shrubberies

slice, read rings of time
ourselves slight circlet
clamped immemorial bark
growing outward into dark
set ecliptic embowered
rooted embroidered light

Note “ecliptic” appears in several instances throughout The Shrubberies. Notably: “welcome, precise ecliptic eye”.

And we blink like a tree forms rings.

And so for day 2278
