Ancestors

When they clear old farmland
for development,
sometimes they leave
the ancient trees,

Marking the border
for a vanished family,
standing guard
over the play yard
of long-dead ghost children.

Threads of rotted rope are
caught in the branches of the
silent sentinels.

These bits of twine flutter
in the wind,
and I feel a child’s breath
at my back,
and I rub at the dust
in my eyes.
