Loving Touch


First I lightly run my fingers along
the grooves of the bark
Then bring all my fingertips to the tree
Push my hand until the palm is also touching
Lean in until my cheek also rests against it
Close my eyes
Take a deep breath through my nose
Focus on the smell
Step in closer
Watch out for drippy bits and bugs
Bring my body in full contact
Wrap my arms around the trunk
Squeeze and then relax.
