like leaves in the wind

do trees recognize
one another and their kin
after their skin’s done
away with, bones hollowed out
carved into bookshelves holding
books – made from their hearts,
when you ruffle the pages
it gives their heartbeats
a moment to breathe again
whispering words and stories
pages, like leaves in the wind
