The Cosmic Tree

Photo of a tree with decoration on the patio of Joe’s Tequila Bar in Santa Fe, NM. Photo and editing by Andrew R. Duckworth.
A tree.
A tree lit with the light of the stars.
Stars, built of blackened iron,
Dangled on chains
Without weather stains.
A tree.
A tree twisted with branch and vines,
Absent any parallel lines,
And the stars hanging by chains shine.
They give new life to a barren tree
Over tables filled with good company
On a patio outside of a bar,
The tree filled with stars,
The cosmic tree.
