Aspens

she gave her the aspen trees
she never saw my dream
deep and dark
white and light
they were there
all connected in
an organism grander
than what we humans can imagine

they sit now in this perfect house
(perhaps i should have waited)
in eastern Kentucky
with crown moldings
and the dining room we long
to be a part of

i zoom in on them now
her perfectly artistic fingertips
able to make an art
only seen in dreams
