All Heart

from "Hunting Season," by Constantinos Chaidalis

All Heart

One tree flushed red
while the others stand in their green or yellow
reveals to others it is in love

Every year it’s the same
the secret turning itself inside out
patch of scarlet turned scarf
turned full body blush

Red tree you will soon hold space
and no leaves at all

and the next year you will do it all again

which is why we call you brave
