Potted Olive Tree

                                                         Grayboy
When day brings 
Him into learning,
Grayboy springs
Into action, attacking
One or another fraction
Of all things, uniting
them, wrestling, testing
Himself  in all he sees.
We too might learn from
Wrestling olive trees.

  1. Wrestling olive trees - - - that's an activity I've never tried, but the thought of it made me smile. Grayboy is beautiful.

    1. Jon, we too made our own fun as kids. Grayboy is feral and grapples with anything that pushes back.

  2. Oh my - another handsome fellow! The siblings are all so different but equally lovely. Grayboy vs The Potted Olive Tree - I hope the olive tree didn't get too mangled in that match.

    1. No threat to the tree, Jenny. My childhood chums and I leapt from tree to tree in an olive orchard (boys start out as monkeys, y'know) and never mangled any. Orchard still stands. Resilient trees.

  3. "wrestling, testing
    Himself in all he sees." <-wonderful, prolific verse.
