Lost & Found


He chained his bike to a tree

when he left for war

but never came back,

his parents kept it there

waiting for their son. 

A century later, 

the bicycle flies like an angel

reaching skyward for its rider,

carried upwards in the arms of the old oak

that cradles parts of the frame

inside its bark.

Just so the shining silver,

a revelation inside a split log,

a lost hatchet revealed. 

Someone set it on the ground 

and lost it, 

it was found 

claimed by vegetation,

then found again 

by an amazed woodcutter.'
