I love to stand in the graveyard,

underneath the hanging branches

of the palm tree --

its broad arms sheltering

headstones that inform --

of lives that are now at peace.


At funerals, I hide from showers

under the sprawling limbs

of this majestic icon --

where earth is dry, protected

from the hailstones and hot sun: below

this sacred tree tranquillity reigns.
