I have a tree

I have an idea.

I have things, I have books, I have a son – I peeped into his book – he wrote about Galileo.

I have an old book about Galileo about the refutation of the accusation of the Inquisitors.

I have an idea, I have things,

I have an itch, I have notions.

I have a friend in China. She writes to me every year sending me pictures of China. Lin Lee is her name but that is all I know.

I have memories, which I select like cards slipped from the shoe.

I keep pictures from the past in a shoe box, slotted into decades.

I have a tree outside, slowly stirring in the early spring, its buds growing in the dark.

I have notions.
