Tethered Freedom ~ reverse nonet

Tethered Freedom

Watch
the limbs
of a tree
and know its joy,
swimming, as it does
with no effort at all,
wind the only waves it needs
while it revels in its freedom,
firmly grasping its place in the world.

This reverse nonet is a response to Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday
